Duck Jazz Festival
We regret to announce that after much deliberation, festival organizers have decided to cancel this year’s Duck Jazz Festival and all associated events. While Hurricane Matthew will likely miss our area, the forecasted wind speed (30+ mph) combined with a 100% chance of several inches of rain on Saturday and Sunday, led us to this decision. Unfortunately, due to the complexity of festival logistics and performer schedules, the event will not be rescheduled. We look forward to a successful 11th Annual (minus 1) Jazz Festival.
Continue to monitor Hurricane Matthew as the track could change.
