Midwest Lindyfest 2020 has been cancelled

It is with heavy hearts that we announce that we are cancelling Midwest Lindy Fest 2020.

We organize this festival because we believe in the power of our community coming together to share the love of dance.The last thing we want to do is risk the health of our dancers, teachers, musicians, volunteers, and staff, as well as the health of the families and communities that everyone returns to after attending our event.

This decision was not made lightly. The MWLF Board of Directors has been monitoring the situation for some time and has discussed this at length internally, as well as conferring with other event organizers and community leaders. We are confident that this is the best decision for the health and safety of everyone involved.










Host to the nation’s only Jazz Cruise on a Riverboat, join us starting Thursday evening for a Lindy Hopping ride down the Mississippi River, accompanied by live music. Then, enjoy three days of classes, and three nights of competition for learning, social dancing, and an all around amazing weekend.  Excited to host you this April, the Twin Cities is home to a large and active vintage jazz dance community, and plenty of talented musicians. Whether you take classes, compete, or just come for the nightly dancing, there is plenty to do while you’re here.



Four Nights of live music and some rocking DJs will have you dancing the night away.
