Duck Jazz Festival Sponsors

The Town of Duck, who organizes the Duck Jazz Festival presented by PNC, announces the postponement of the event until October 8 & 9, 2022.

In consultation with health officials and our presenting sponsor in addition to new guidance by the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) on events and festivals, organizers reviewed the health, safety, and logistical concerns related to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. Under new guidance, the setup, flow, and reduced schedule able to be safely offered by the Duck Jazz Festival would not allow for the same interaction with community members and artists that are a hallmark of this event. Organizers have opted to postpone the festival in order to offer the best, and safest, event possible.

We understand how much those that live, work, and visit our community look forward to this annual event. Thank you to all of the sponsors and volunteers that have continued to support us over the years and the attendees that have brought so much excitement to the Duck Town Park. We urge everyone to follow the guidance of your health officials so that we can safely celebrate the return of jazz to Duck in 2022.

The Town of Duck wishes to thank sponsors who significantly help with the costs of staging a quality Jazz Festival. The festival is free and open to the public, and is designed to provide a unique entertainment opportunity for residents and visitors on the Outer Banks. In addition to a great day of music in the park on two stages, the Duck Jazz Festival provides an educational workshop for Dare County High School music students, artist appearances leading up to the festival in the Town of Duck, and interactive learning experiences for old and young. Businesses throughout Duck offer jazz events in conjunction with the festival which has helped to build a large following of jazz enthusiasts who return to Duck and the Outer Banks annually for this special event, or who discover the Outer Banks for the first time as they come to Duck for this special festival.r
