The 16th annual Nelson Jazz Festival is to be held from the 2nd of January until the 6th January, 2007.

Launching with Jazz in the Park at Fairfield Park in Nelson on 2nd January this promises to be a day of entertainment you will not want to miss. Fairfield Park, walking distance from central Nelson, comes alive with both locals and visitors from all over the world basking in the summer sun, enjoying an array of artists and bands from New Zealand and the World.
