OLGYear 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.
