Downtown Oakville Jazz FestivalExperience the best of Oakville at the Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival this August 9 & 10

There’s no better place to be than Downtown Oakville during the early August summer evenings when the Town comes alive in a celebration of music for The Oakville Jazz Festival.  For two days in August, cobblestone walkways, restaurants and outdoor patios rub shoulders with bandstands, stages, beer tents and musicians, and the unmistakeable beat of the summer jazz festival.  Warm summer breezes add to the ambiance of the festival and help to create a sultry atmosphere throughout the day and into the early evenings along Lakeshore Road and the entire core of downtown Oakville. 

Celebrating over 20 years of great jazz, The Oakville Jazz Festival is unarguably regarded as one of the GTA’s most highly respected and anticipated yearly music festivals.  From its grassroots beginnings, the Oakville Jazz Festival has grown into a major musical event, drawing thousands of people to Oakville to enjoy the live outdoor jazz performances from the finest North American talent. This year’s line up is scheduled to include: Grammy Award-nominated blues artists, the Heritage Blues Orchestra featuring their delta blues sound, Jen Chapin (daughter of the late great Harry Chapin) and her trio performing their urban, folk soul sound, and rising star guitarist from Brazil, Diego Figueiredo.  The Canadian talent pool includes Juno Award nominee Jaffa Road, and Juno Award winner Liali Biali, a singer and piano player with a knack for taking the best of pop, rock and soul and weaving them into amazing jazz arrangements.

Experience the taste of New Orleans and Bourbon Street in your own backyard!  Enjoy the lively sounds of world-class jazz, meander through the unique downtown shops, stroll along the shoreline of Lake Ontario, take in one of Oakville’s historical museums, or enjoy the world-class culinary expertise of one of downtown Oakville’s many fine restaurants.  The Oakville Jazz Festival showcases the best that Oakville has to offer and offers something for everyone!
