We hope all of our Hampton Jazz Festival friends are staying healthy and doing well during this most challenging time.  We have remained highly optimistic as we closely monitor the COVID-19 crisis and are encouraged as we’ve seen progress over the past few months with the availability of vaccinations.

Unfortunately, with travel bans, continued limits on gatherings, and high COVID-19 case numbers still impacting many states, we have decided the best course of action to ensure the continued safety of our guests, artists, and staff is to cancel the 2021 Hampton Jazz Festival.

We are beyond grateful to each and every person that is part of the Hampton Jazz Festival family. Planning is already underway for the 2022 festival and we are striving to host many of the same artists that were originally scheduled to play in 2020. We look forward to reuniting with you June 24 - 26, 2022.

Until then, please stay healthy and safe!

- Hampton Jazz Festival Board
