Newport Jazz Club Supporter Page


It is with the heaviest of hearts we announce the cancellation of the 2020 Newport Jazz Festival.

What Will Happen to my Jazz Club Membership? 

As a thank you for your support, we’ve decided to rollover your Jazz Club Membership fee ($100) to 2020-2021. You will be able to purchase your 2021 Jazz Club Tickets without paying the required membership fee.

What will happen to the Jazz Club Tickets I Purchased? 

Due to the financial and institutional uncertainties we find ourselves in, we believe the most trusting and direct course of action is to let you decide what to do with the tickets you purchased for this year. We ask that you please consider donating all or a portion of your total ticket order that will go directly towards ensuring our festival for 2021 while continuing our support for artists and educators.  We understand that these are difficult times, so we are offering an option for a 100% full ticket refund.


Although we won’t be able to gather at the Fort Adams this summer, rest assured we have invited ALL the announced artists to join us next year. In the meantime, we promise we will all commune one way or another on our festival weekend. Stay tuned for more details in the coming weeks. Until then, stay safe. And as our founder George Wein says, don’t miss the beat.
