Year after year, Toronto’s very own Beaches International Jazz Festival makes a major contribution to promoting Canadian jazz excellence for our great city and on the world stage.
The Festival is a successful collaboration between corporate and government sponsors, jazz enthusiasts, professional artists, local businesses, charities and the general public.
It has grown tremendously in scope and size, but still maintains a flavour of grass roots inclusivity and ambience.
We offer daytime and evening opportunities to attract your product or services. Our crowd density and excitement factor per square meter easily exceeds that of other events hosted in Toronto. Our entrance fee is also unbeatable! It’s FREE!
