The Markham Jazz Festival has presented diverse and eclectic jazz performers – performers who are not only drawn from the cream of the crop of Canadian jazz artists, but who also come from a wide variety of other countries, including the U.S.A. and Cuba. The Festival’s repertoire spans a variety of genres, including traditional, swing, Latin, fusion, world, Dixieland, and contemporary jazz.
In the twenty years that the Festival has been in existence, it has garnered a reputation as one of the finer community jazz Festivals in Canada.
The 20th annual Markham Jazz Festival will take place in August with a free weekend of high-quality performances during the day and evening on Main Street Unionville at the Millennium Bandstand, Varley Art Gallery and McKay Art Centre Beer and Wine Garden, as well as various other stages around town. To compliment the Main Stage events, “Hot Spots” (a variety of venues in Unionville and Markham) present fantastic jazz artists in a ‘Street Festival and Concert Environment’. Festival attendees can wander from venue to venue, soaking up the party atmosphere, the jazz music, and the historic beauty of the villages of Unionville and Markham- a truly a magical experience.
The festival will highlight a large variety of music within the family of jazz. The festival committee has worked hard to recruit a wide range of diverse, interesting and well-known artists who will present jazz in all its forms.
