The TD Toronto Jazz Festival is Toronto’s largest music festival. Entertaining more than 500,000 people, it is the kickoff event for summer in the city. Some of the most storied names in jazz have participated in this annual music festival, which dates back to 1987. Today, that tradition continues with the Festival combining established marquee names alongside rising artists.
One of the great hallmarks of any city is the cultural fabric it offers its citizens, and Toronto is a world-class city with a world-class jazz festival. Spread across the city in more than 60 locations, free and daily ticketed programming ensures that the Festival reaches every budget in every neighbourhood. With an economic impact over the years of more than $460 million, the TD Toronto Jazz Festival is a mainstay in the arts community.
