The Mile High Band Association is moving forward with the Jazz and Beyond - Carson City Music and Art Festival scheduled for Aug. 7-23.
The Planning Committee is meeting by video conference and
has confirmed several bands and reserved venues. Due to uncertainty about
grants, sponsors, and ad sales, as well as COVID-19 restrictions, however,
further bookings are on hold.
For updates, see MileHighJazz.com.
The Jazz & Beyond art contest for the festival’s
advertising poster, program cover, and T-shirt design is in progress. The entry
deadline has been extended to May 1. Participation is free. Entry forms are
available on the websites JazzCarsonCity.com and MileHighJazz.com.
If the festival is cancelled this year, the winning art
contest designs will be used for 2021, and if a winner has not been selected,
entries will be included in the 2021 competition.

deliver entries, contact Art Contest Coordinator Alexander Cassimus at
