ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Major changes are ahead for the CGI Rochester International Jazz Fest as organizers announce venue and date changes.
The Jazz Fest is now scheduled for July 30 through August 7 on the campus of RIT.
Festival organizers say the change in venue from downtown Rochester to RIT's campus will allow for a more flexible space and give people more time to be vaccinated.
Last year's festival was canceled because of the pandemic.
Jazz Fest officials say it chose RIT because of its venue options and for its state-of-the-art air purification system.
More details on the artists and the venue will be released as plans are finalized.
