same festival that you love!

Nimble and resilient, the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival continues to astonish the community by presenting some of the industry’s most exciting and ground-breaking artists whether in-person or virtually. Despite our best efforts to create for you another world-class live event in our beautiful downtown locations; Ottawa’s Confederation Park and Festival Plaza, we are, for safety’s sake, unable to do so! However, we are still committed to bring you the finest talent on the Canadian music scene albeit virtually.

From August 19 – 22, we invite you to adventure with us into an extraordinary world of stunning visuals and world class sound recording. Incomparable Canadian artists will join us on this virtual journey with renowned Montreal video designer Jean-Marc Abela (Montreal Symphony Orchestra) and award-winning local sound engineer, Ross Murray.

And if permitted, we will bring the city to life with as many pop-up concerts as we can manage in both common and in unexpected venues from around the city!

The Festival is keenly aware that artists, technical & production consultants, small businesses, and tourism industry partners rely in part on music festivals for some of their livelihood. To that end, we are determined help in the fiscal recovery of our friends wherever and however we can.

More details will be announced as they become available.
