Since its inception in 2009, Jazz Sudbury Festival has become one of the premier musical events in the North. Named Best New Festival in 2012 and one of the Top 100 Festivals in Ontario, Jazz Sudbury continues to expand and quickly build its reputation as one of the finest community events in the province. Jazz Sudbury showcases talented, award-winning artists and continues to expose the community to the diverse and captivating genre that is jazz. Jazz Sudbury’s goals are to enrich the community’s arts sector and encourage participation in cultural events while creating opportunities to showcase up and coming performers. Jazz Sudbury is an independent, charitable organization and is actively pursuing partnerships within the community in order to sustain and build its presence provincially, nationally and internationally.

September 5 to 9, 2018 marks our tenth-anniversary celebration with mainstage performances at the Grace Hartman Amphitheatre on the shores of beautiful Ramsey Lake, shows at eight unique downtown venues, and a New Orleans style parade led by a traditional Dixieland Band.
