Clarence Jazz Festival

Tasmania’s premier jazz festival, the Clarence Jazz Festival is held in February each year.

With local, interstate and international acts, the Clarence Jazz Festival is a celebration of live music held at venues across the city.

Many of these concerts are free of charge with some ticketed concerts held at the Jazz Lounge at Rosny Barn.

The Clarence Jazz Festival provides a few unique touches including the ambassador program that features well-known jazz performers who bring the concerts together, guest with the musicians on stage and engage with the crowd.

There is also a scholarship program for a young musician to receiving tuition and mentoring that culminates in performing at the Bellerive Boardwalk.
