Huge thank you to everyone who tuned in to the first ever Virtual Beaches Jazz Festival. We would like to send out a special thank you to everyone who has supported the Michael Garron Hospital front line workers throughout the Festival. Thank you to all of our loyal sponsors, government partners, volunteers, staff, and performers; without them we wouldn’t be able to produce such an incredible FREE Virtual Festival.
We look forward to being back in the Park and on the Street in 2021. Please continue to check our website for updates.
The festival began in 1989, when local jazz artists were booked to perform at the Kew Gardens Bandshell in the beach area of Toronto. Now celebrating her 32nd anniversary, the festival has blossomed into a month long mid-summer event that attracts thousands of fans and makes a major contribution to promoting Canadian jazz excellence locally and on the world stage.
