A Showcase of Jazz

There is a reason why over half a million music lovers head to the Toronto Jazz Festival each year. Since it began in 1987, it has showcased some of the most celebrated jazz and blues musicians in the world including Tony Bennett, Diana Krall, Sonny Rollins and Harry Connick Jr. It is now Toronto’s largest music festival and an exciting destination each summer for locals and tourists alike.

The Venues

Toronto Jazz Festival performances take place at over 30 venues in downtown Toronto. Nathan Phillips Square is the home base for the festival and where many of the free performances take place. This public square, located in front of Toronto City Hall at the corner of Queen and Bay Streets, features a Mainstage Concert Theatre that seats over 1000 people as well as an outdoor stage.

Free events are also held at Yonge-Dundas Square, located at the southeast corner of Yonge and Dundas Streets across from the Toronto Eaton Centre.
