A sincere THANK YOU for your support and attendance at the Lakeside DixieFest. Since our founding in 1993, we have been fortunate to bring to our stage, free of charge, excellent regional and international jazz bands, all thanks to the generous support of both our major sponsors and individual patrons.
Unfortunately, during these 27 years, we have lost more than an entire generation of fans that grew up listening to this great traditional Dixieland music, as well as musicians that enjoyed performing that music. Over these past years , operating costs have dramatically increased, many good bands have disappeared, and musical tastes have changed. As a result of these and other factors, we regret to announce that our 2019 Lakeside DixieFest was our final event.
