|Following the guidance of City and State officials regarding large gatherings, the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE) canceled all permitted special events through Labor Day (September 7, 2020). Regrettably, this includes many of Chicago’s annual summertime traditions - including the Chicago Jazz Festival. In lieu of summer festivals, DCASE is presenting a series of reimagined summer events including "Millennium Park at Home" concerts and a forthcoming series of live events featuring Chicago musicians performing at neighborhood clubs and other unique locations — for limited in-person engagements and broadcast to larger audiences.|
Produced by the Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events | Programmed by the Jazz Institute of Chicago
The Chicago Jazz Festival showcases the greatest jazz artists from Chicago and around the world across the city during new, extended festival dates. The Chicago Jazz Festival is produced by the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events and programmed by the Jazz Institute of Chicago.
