TD Ottawa Jazz Festival
From the avant-garde to big band and swing, come enjoy musical stylings to suit any jazz aficionado!
Each summer, one of Ottawa’s largest music festivals – known locally as “Jazz Fest” – attracts some of the world’s best, as well as up-and-comers in the world of Jazz. Concerts are held on several outdoor stages near Ottawa City Hall and more intimate shows take place at indoor locations throughout downtown Ottawa. This year, the eclectic lineup features Chaka Khan, Alison Krauss, Herbie Hancock, St Germain, and many more international and Canadian artists. And each Canada Day (July 1), the Jazz Fest offers FREE admission to its concerts!
