SAGINAW, Mich. –After careful consideration regarding public health and safety, the 2020 Jazz on Jefferson celebration scheduled for June 3, 2020 in Saginaw, Mich., has been cancelled.
“Following continuing and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the committee believes the health and wellbeing of participants and guests is of overriding importance,” said Tom Trombley, Jazz on Jefferson coordinator.
This annual one-night event celebrates the history, vitality and diversity of Saginaw’s South Jefferson Avenue and attracts several thousand people each year.
With plans underway for next year’s Jazz on Jefferson scheduled June 9, 2021, organizers hope to develop additional programming that will highlight the vitality and heritage of the neighborhood.
Jazz on Jefferson is a cooperative project of the Jefferson Avenue institutions coordinated by the Castle Museum. For more information, please contact the Castle Museum 989-752-2861 of visit www.castlemuseum.org/jazzonjefferson.
