Port Fairy Jazz FestivalFri 12 February 2021 - Sun 14 February 2021
When the festival committee was forced to make the decision to cancel the 2021 Port Fairy Jazz Festival due to uncertainty surrounding covid restrictions, we decided that we would host a virtual festival to enable jazz lovers to keep in touch with their favourite bands’ music. It also provides an opportunity to discover new acts who will hopefully appear at the 2022 festival.
12 to 14 February 2021
This virtual festival is now on-line. Click the "Virtual Festival" link to take a look at the virtual concerts generously shared by many of the musicians who regularly appear at the Port Fairy Jazz Festival.
See you at the 2022 festival from the 11th – 13th February 2022

This low-cost festival run by volunteers provides 10 venues, includes dancing venues,
runs from Friday 5pm to Sunday 6pm, has a Saturday morning Street Parade and a Sunday morning gospel service.

The Port Fairy Spring Music Festival was created in 1990 by the late British/ Australian composer Michael Easton ARAM and the pianist Len Vorster and has been staged as an annual regional music festival since then.
Due to Covid-19, the Board has decided that the Festival will not go ahead for 2020 in the usual format. Instead, the Artistic Directors looked at other ways to bring the “Festival” to life.
Our next festival will be from 15 to 17 October 2021. Stay tuned for more inforamtion by clicking the link below.
