About the TD International Jazz Festival

Music festivals abound, but one stands out for its innovative and adventurous programming. The TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival has been called “North America’s most comprehensive and consistently rewarding jazz showcase” and “has set the standard for excellence, creativity and positive energy.” Produced by Coastal Jazz & Blues Society, the Jazz Festival is a colossal event that draws well over half a million people to its 35 indoor and outdoor stages. The society also programs Frankie's Jazz Club, numerous year-round concerts, and education and outreach programs like TD High School Jazz Intensive and musician workshops. Coastal Jazz supports so much diverse music in the city that it is the foundation of music in Vancouver, inspiring the city’s soundtrack.  [Tyee]
