What a setting, what music! With a beautiful beachside setting like Manly, a large variety of free music indoor and outdoor and that relaxed Manly vibe - this is one jazz festival not to be missed. The music ranging from New Orleans, blues, traditional jazz, swing, grassroots, funk, and many others will keep visitors bopping, dancing and smiling along.
Check out the details of the more than 100 free performances across four stages and indoor venues. Roving performers ensure you will never be without music!
The 41st annual Manly Jazz will be held over the October long weekend from Saturday 29 September - Monday 1 October 2018. There are lots of great opportunities for dining offers to make sure you don't go hungry. As well many pubs and cafes will have special entertainment on offer.
And what better way to get there than by the Manly ferry!
