While the 2021 Port Fairy Jazz Festival will not go ahead, lovers of the genre will still get some satisfaction in the town this summer.
The committee behind the jazz festival has announced a Jazz on the Green event on February 12-14.
All the action will take place on Fiddler's Green and will be carried out according to COVID-19 regulations.
Three shows will take place on each of the three days.
The Friday timeslots will be at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm.
Saturday and Sunday shows will be at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
As part of the plan to keep the event COVID-19 safe, entry to each show will be via Bank Street.
Attendance will be capped at 150 people at each show, with no bookings, with a first in best dressed policy.
The maximum number of performers on stage at any one time will be six.
Patrons will be asked to bring their own seating, whether that be chairs or rugs. Entry to the event is free.
Acts to perform include Gavin and Heather, NQR, In Full Swing and the Harry Quail Collective.
The Port Fairy Jazz Festival was first held in 2017, with the event quickly building momentum.
The 2020 Port Fairy Jazz Festival was a highly successful one, with a highlight being an attempt to gain a world record for the most people in one place dancing the Charleston.
While the attempt fell short of the record mark, more than 500 people turned out to ensure Port Fairy did not go down without a fight.
Port Fairy Jazz Festival president Rod Carter said a lot of hard work had been put into bringing some jazz to the town in 2021.
"There have been a lot of hoops to jump through," Mr Carter said.
"But it is all about keeping people safe and we want to do the right thing by the Port Fairy community, which has supported us so much.
"We will follow all regulations and with our crowd density we have erred on the side of caution and gone for less than we are allowed, rather than squeeze everything in and be on the limits.
"We have able to use our festival funding from Moyne Shire to cover some of the costs of the event."
