The TD Niagara Jazz Festival celebrates music, life and art.

The TD Niagara Jazz Festival is a new, cutting edge four-day celebration of all types of jazz, performed in intimate indoor and outdoor venues in the heart of Niagara’s stunning wine country. The TD Niagara Jazz Festival presents the finest Canadian and internationally-acclaimed jazz musicians by way of spectacular concerts, wine, craft beer, and culinary packages, and free performances throughout Niagara-on-the-Lake and selected locations throughout Niagara.

The first Niagara Jazz Festival had it’s inaugural year on August 22nd – 24th, 2014 and was a huge success. Close to 3,000 people attended throughout the 3 day festival and 7 venues, 20 bands and over 70 musicians were involved. Five years later and the 2018 TD Niagara Jazz Festival is currently being planned with more venues, artists and stakeholders on board for its biggest year yet!
