Join us lakeside at Woodbine Park for the launch of the Beaches International Jazz Festival and the kick-off to the Festival’s 26th year celebrations, which features the TD Main Stage and our brand new Toronto Port Authority Youth Stage, and the Party Island Stage. The Festival in conjunction with the Toronto Port Authority is proud to present some of Canada’s best up-and-coming youth jazz musicians at our Youth Stage re-located just east of the Woodbine Park TD Mainstage. This first weekend , we feature student combos from Discovery Through the Arts Music School which is located in the Beach neighbourhood. These terrific combos allow students to perform with their teachers and mentors. Our Party Island Stage is new for 2014, fusing a kaleidoscope of African and Afro-Caribbean sounds for your listening and dancing pleasure. All three stages are active July 18, 19 and 20 of 2014.

Check out our Taste of Jazz event in the park from July 22 to 23. Featuring live jazz music in the beer garden coupled with a tasty line-up of gourmet food trucks.

Tips for an enjoyable stay: 

Located at the western edge of the Beach community, Woodbine Park is situated at the corner of Northern Dancer Boulevard and Lake Shore Boulevard East (Northern Dancer is between Coxwell and Woodbine Avenues). If you plan to stay a while – and we encourage you to – bring sun screen and a hat, a big blanket or folding chairs to rest on, and (yes it’s sometimes necessary) – rain gear. Because we’re lakeside, it can get cool at night, so bring a sweater or just cozy up to your neighbour.


You can also grab a seat in our licensed beer garden! Various food kiosks are located throughout the site. Woodbine Park is wheelchair accessible.
