MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – The popular ‘Jazz in the Gardens Festival’ in Miami Gardens will not be happening this year, but plans are in the works to bring it back in March 2022.

“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. 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,” said Miami Gardens Mayor Rodney Harris.

The 2-day jazz and R&B festival has hosted big names like Lionel Richie, The Roots and Mary J. Blige over the last decade.

The festival has been called “the fastest growing music festival in the country” since its debut in 2006. It also has been known for the exotic and diverse dishes offered at its food court.

Organizers promise a star-studded lineup on stage at the Hard Rock Stadium in March 2022, to celebrate its 15th anniversary.
