February 21st and 22nd, 2014
University of Northern Iowa

Welcome to the Tallcorn Jazz Festival website

Important Notice!

2014 dates are in conflict with the Coe festival. However, careful planning will allow bands to participate in both! Coe does not set specific days aside for the different classes as we do, so if you plan to atttend both festivals, it may be a good idea to request the opposite day at Coe (we host 1A, 4A, and second bands on Friday, 2A and 3A on Saturday). Or consolidate your transportation costs and play both festivals on the same day. Be sure to alert the staff of both festivals if you choose this option as it will necessitate careful scheduling.


Thanks for your patience!
