It was the last event held in the Roosevelt Park before the flood waters moved in last June.
The Integrity Jazz Festival is back for the fifth annual show, and this year, in support of the flood recovery effort, the Jazz Festival is free.
This year the Integrity Jazz Festival will be held in the Scandinavian Heritage Park.
Minot Area Council of the Arts President Terri Aldrich decided that the central location on Broadway makes it the perfect venue to host a free event.
Local sponsors were on board with the idea and covered the over head the MACA had accrued in booking nationally known jazz artists.
Entertainment will include vocalist Amanda Carr with Everett Longstreth's Big-Band, which has received positive review across the country.
Local favorites like Soulshine and the Chris Hanson Jazz Quartet will round out a full day of Jazz Festival entertainment.
A jam session will follow the event.
Aldrich says if you've never been, you're missing out.
(Terri Aldrich, Minot Area Council of the Arts) "Jazz is a players art. So in a jam session you get the opportunity to actually see people just working their art form. It's an exciting thing because someone will call a tune and what happens is just what's coming from their heart and their soul. Their artistry comes out in that moment."
The Integrity Jazz Festival will be held in the Scandinavian Heritage Park on June 23 from 1-8 following a morning 5K run at 9 am.
