Local News

EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – An annual festival bringing music to Eau Claire is going virtual.

Last year’s Eau Claire Jazz Festival was canceled due to COVID-19.

This year’s theme is “A Night with Local Legends.”  The jazz band at UWEC also participates in this event every year.

Even though it’s a virtual event, students say they’re still looking forward to the festival.

“To honestly just be a part of this historic event that’s been amazing thing for the community it’s just been something I’m very proud of and I will definitely look back on five to ten years later and be like I’m very very proud of that,” said Bryant Rahm, UWEC student.

The festival takes place this Thursday and Friday night at 7:30 pm.
