Changes to events and gatherings
Following NSW Health advice all Council events have been postponed or temporarily suspended. Please check the Changes to events and gatherings page for the most up to date information.

Manly Jazz will go ahead in 2021 taking place across the October long weekend (1 – 4 October), albeit a little bit different to ensure we adhere to the NSW Health Orders regarding COVID-19.

The event will activate a number of outdoor spaces within the Manly town centre, programming smaller intimate sets whilst still including favourites such as St Matthews Church and our roving entertainers.

Council will also be seeking support from local businesses to run unique entertainment and dining experiences within their venues across the long weekend.

The festival attracts a mixed crowd from ‘hard-core’ jazz aficionados to those who simply want to enjoy great music.

If you have any questions please email or call the Events Team on 8495 6559.
