The Pender Harbour Jazz Festival is being postponed until next year.

Marg Penney, Vice Chair of the Pender Harbour Music Society says the director for the festival has retired and they’re looking for a new team to take over.

Penney says they will host their traditional Friday afternoon clinic for high school students from the Coast and then they’ll have a jazz concert on Saturday night.

She adds businesses in the community should continue to hire musicians to play at their venues, as they usually do.
