ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The CGI Rochester International Jazz Festival made a huge comeback this year after being absent the past couple of years due to the pandemic.

The 2022 edition drew record attendance.

More than 210,000 checked out Jazz Street and the shows at Parcel 5 during the nine-day festival. That's up from 208,000 in 2019.

Several new attractions at this year's event, such as the beer garden on Gibbs Street, helped bring in higher attendance.

Mark your calendars for next year. Jazz Fest returns on June 23 through July 1, 2023.
