— The Edmond Jazz and Blues Festival scheduled for this weekend at Stephenson Park has been canceled due to the weather events in the state this week.

Festival spokesman Jason Gilliam said because of the forecast for potentially dangerous weather this weekend, and out of respect for the families that have lost so much, organizers decided to postpone the festival.

Festival sponsors have been consulted and were encouraged to use their funds and resources in support of the relief efforts instead, Gilliam said.

“We plan to reschedule the event pending being able to find an appropriate date,” Gilliam said.
