Festival

Let Music Connect Us Again.

The TD Ottawa Jazz Festival has been exploring and expanding the limits of jazz for four decades. The music has evolved and exploded into a spectrum of sounds that span old- and new-wave jazz; funk, soul, swing, classic, and everything in between.

For ten days in the summer, the transformative, vibrant energy of jazz — masterfully played by musicians from across Canada and around the world — takes over downtown Ottawa. So, indulge your love and curiosity for jazz. Explore new genres. Dance to old favourites. Taste those melodies. Feel that sound. Open your ears.
