A BRIEF HISTORY…
The Festival began in 1989, when local jazz artists were booked to perform at the Kew Beach Bandshell in the Beach area of Toronto. Now celebrating her 27th anniversary, the Festival has blossomed into a 14-day event that attracts millions of fans and makes a major contribution to promoting Canadian jazz excellence locally and on the world stage.
