Jazz & Blues Fest

CANCELLED: 2016 Ridgewood Jazz & Blues Fest

Unfortunately we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2016 Ridgewood Guild’s Jazz & Blues Fest! We have run out of time and resources needed to be able to pull of this event. We will be planning smaller events this year leading up to the 2017 Jazz & Blues Fest, so if you’re interested in sponsoring that, or joining our committee and helping us plan it, please reach out to Tony at: ridgewoodguild@aol.com. Thank you for your support!
