The 2021 FHFJ will be held on Saturday and Sunday Sept. 18-19 at Shaker Village. The festival remains a free event that will feature world class jazz musicians, 12 ensembles, and the return of former Prince sax man Adrian Crutchfield to headline Saturday night. Please note that we have changed venues to Shaker Village allowing for greater social distancing and safety. So mark your calendar, bring a lawn chair or blanket, and join us. Live jazz in a scenic and historic setting with free admission! Sounds like the perfect combination for a September weekend!

Note: This is an outdoor event held rain or shine. So, check the weather and plan accordingly. Small pop-up tents and umbrellas allowed in designated areas. Food trucks will be parked nearby, and an outdoor cash bar for food and drink for festival attendees. Bring a lawn chair to insure seating.

We strongly encourage all attendees to bring masks and use as necessary if social distancing of six feet cannot be maintained. More about COVID-19 protocols.

We also are pleased to announce "free admission" for the festival weekend for tours of dozens of historic exhibits, guided tours, and other engaging experiences at Shaker Village, generously sponsored by our festival partner, Family Wealth Group. With 3,000 acres, 34 historic Shaker structures, 36 miles of trails, beautifully conserved landscapes, seed-to-table dining, 72 hotel rooms, shopping and much more, Shaker Village along with the Fort Harrod Jazz Festival offer a totally unique family friendly experience.

The Festival greatly appreciates our 35 sponsors and our partners Shaker Village, and the Mercer Chamber of Commerce for their support to help make this all possible!
