Jazz music fans rejoice – a popular Southwestern event will return in 2022. Port Fairy Jazz Festival committee chair Rod Carter said the event will take place in the second week of February. A small-scale event took place last year due to coronavirus restrictions. “Now that the COVID-19 restrictions have been relaxed, the festival becomes a viable proposition,” Carter said. However, some restrictions are still in place, he said. Mr Carter said more than 100 groups have already pledged to perform. The festival will be held in various venues and will start on Friday February 11. Mr Carter said the Charleston Street March and Dance Show will not take place in 2022. The program also includes a number of forums and workshops, as well as an open mic session every night. . In previous years, people from Melbourne and other states have attended the event.
