Starting off with a set of free park concerts, this years’ Clarence Jazz Festival will kick-off on Sunday 15 February at the Richmond Village Green, Monday at Clifton Beach Reserve and Tuesday at Beltana Park in Lindisfarne.

After touring around these popular waterfront parks, the Clarence Jazz Twilight Concerts set up camp on the manicured lawns of the Rosny Farm for balmy early evening swing with a fully licensed bar and a selection of refreshments available.

For lingerers and those who like their jazz after dark, The Barn at Rosny Farm opens its doors as the Jazz Lounge. With more experimental, virtuosic performances and that small club energy, it’s the place to kick on and enjoy some fine Tasmanian wine.

All concerts on the lawns and in the Jazz Lounge at The Barn are free excepting our special guest artist.

Alderman Heather Chong, Festival Convenor, said we are often fortunate enough to present exceptionally talented international touring artists and this year’s Clarence Jazz Festival Special Guest Michelle Nicolle is a shining example of vocal talent.

“It’s a coup to have Nicolle performing in The Jazz Lounge. Nicolle has received the prestigious National Jazz Award and is three times Mo Jazz Vocalist of the Year. “Alderman Chong said.

From Friday the jazz bops to the Boardwalk for ‘Young Players Night’ showcasing our latest Clarence Jazz Scholarship Recipients, who will be performing together for the first time.

Then leaning into the hard swing for the rest of the weekend, it’s a perfect way to enjoy some sunshine on the waterfront, consume some amazing food and enjoy the Moo Brew bar.
