Music and fun for everyone

The Harbour Street Jazz and Blues Festival has become a regular fixture in Oamaru’s calendar of events, held every Otago Anniversary weekend. In 2019 it will be held from March 22-25.

It is a high-quality feelgood festival with broad appeal, featuring musicians from throughout New Zealand and Australia, and showcasing 45 events — 43 free to the public — against the backdrop and culture of Oamaru’s historic Victorian Precinct, bringing jazz and blues music alive for a diverse audience to enjoy in many of the wonderful cafe´s and bars throughout the weekend.

There is music and fun for everyone.

Bring the family along to the steampunk playground and enjoy an enriched musical experience in the sunshine.

Come and join in at a workshop where you will have the opportunity to engage with and be tutored by experienced musicians. If you enjoy performing, the festival provides a platform for performance and participation at a talent quest.

It is a great weekend of jazz and blues music culminating with a grand finale ticketed event. Come dine and dance the night away with well-known New Zealand performers.
