The Toledo Jazz Festival was reformed in 2015 with a small, dedicated group of jazz lovers. The partnership with the Valentine Theatre evolved in late 2017 and the first TJF event was scheduled for the fall of 2018. The 2019 festival was altered due to road construction on Adams Street. The festival will offer a performance with Dianne Schuur and the Masters of Music Big Band at the Valentine Theatre once the pandemic is under control. The 2021 festival is currently scheduled for June 12 & 13 with updates being released in the spring of 2021.
There is also a long term commitment by the festival to carry out significant educational programs and outreach in the greater Toledo area. The long term goal is to provide all of the educational programs at no cost to any of the participants or their families.
