Clarence Jazz Festival
An annual event held at the end of February each year.
Held in beautiful outdoor, riverside and historic locations, the Clarence Jazz Festival is Tasmania's premier annual jazz festival. Audiences love the great performances, unique locations and unrivalled good vibes.
The Festival presents the very best in local jazz talent and great performers from around Australia.
The intimate and unique atmosphere of the Jazz Lounge set in the 200 year old Rosny Barn is a favourite with the audiences.
The Festival begins in beautiful parks and gardens on the eastern shore of the River Derwent and culminates in three days and nights of concerts on the Bellerive Boardwalk overlooking the Kangaroo Bay marina. Audiences at the Boardwalk love the fresh Tasmanian food prepared on site and bar serving local Tasmanian wines and beverages. On Saturday and Sunday free activities and crafts are provided for the children.
All venues are only 15 minutes from the Hobart CBD. Catch a bus or a water taxi. All outdoor concerts are free while some concerts in the Jazz Lounge are ticketed.
