The committee behind the Port Fairy Jazz Festival will be staging a Jazz on the Green event this weekend.
Beginning on Friday and continuing across the weekend, the event will be held on Fiddler's Green, with strict COVD-19 Safe protocols in place.
These include the limiting of numbers on the green for the shows to 150 people, spread across three zones.
The three shows will take place on Friday at 5pm, 6pm and 7pm and Saturday and Sunday at 1pm, 2pm and 3pm.
While the event will be much smaller than the full-scale festival, the quality of music on show will be of a high standard.
Performing at the event will be the acts In Full Swing, NQR, Gavin (Franklin) and Heather, and the Harry Quail Collective. David Hines will also be doing some solo performances.
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."
The festival committee has also put together an array of virtual performances from a wide variety of jazz performers which can be viewed via portfairyjazz.com.au/virtual-festival.html
