Annual Traditional Jazz Fest Cancelled

Chilliwack Dixieland Festival Cancelled, Concert Postponed

Jazz fans lose the popular long-running Chilliwack Dixieland Jazz Festival for this year, as well seeing their highly-anticipated concert series postponed.

The president of the local jazz society, Rob Hopkins, says this year’s festival cancellation was necessary due to financial restraints. The group intends to rebuild and refinance in order to return with a strong 2007 festival.

Running the last 17 years, the festival has been attended by thousands of jazz fans. In addition, the society’s Jazz Spectacular Benefit Concert, originally slated to be held on May 5 and 6th, 2006, had to be postponed due to scheduling conflicts by the performers, and will be rescheduled for early 2007.
