Last year, Jazz in the Gardens – the popular, two-day music festival in Miami Gardens – had to be canceled just days shy of its scheduled start.
And this year, the popular event is not faring any better.
Due to ongoing challenges associated with the pandemic, the city has announced its springtime event, which typically features jazz and R&B artists, has been rescheduled for March 2022 at Hard Rock Stadium. However, no exact dates have been released as of yet.
“We are disappointed about the cancellation of the 15th anniversary of the festival, however, safety remains the highest priority for the City of Miami Gardens,” said Miami Gardens Mayor Rodney Harris, in a statement. “It is prudent for us to get COVID-19 under control in order to plan a safe and successful staging of Jazz in the Gardens for everyone to enjoy. I look forward to celebrating with all our patrons, vendors and our sponsors when we return in 2022.”

The event was also canceled in 2020, just days before its scheduled dates, to protect against the COVID-19 virus.
Jazz in the Gardens has enjoyed unprecedented growth since its inception in 2006 – and has been hailed as “the fastest growing music festival in the country.” Previous performers have included the likes of Lionel Richie, Mary J. Blige, Earth Wind & Fire, Kenny G., The Roots, Robin Thicke, Brandy, Maxwell, Babyface, Jill Scott and Herbie Hancock.
We will update this post as information about dates, musical lineup and tickets becomes available. For more information, visit jazzinthegardens.com.
