Clarence Jazz Festival

The Clarence Jazz Festival - Sunday 21 February to Sunday 28 February 2016

The Clarence Jazz Festival is an annual event held in beautiful outdoor, riverside and historic locations. Australia’s only 8 day jazz festival, Clarence Jazz offers audiences great performances, unique locations and unrivalled good vibes.

The festival begins with twilight concerts presented at beautiful locations in Clarence - South Arm, Montagu Bay and Lindisfarne. Then we move to the Rosny Farm for more twilight concerts followed by contemporary sounds in the 200 year old stone Rosny Barn, which transforms into the Jazz Lounge for four nights.

Audiences are then invited to the Bellerive Boardwalk overlooking the Bellerive Yacht Club Marina for a weekend of great music, fine food, Tasmanian wines and great atmosphere.

All venues are within 10-20 minutes from the Hobart CBD and all outdoor concerts are free while some concerts in the Jazz Lounge are ticketed.
