The TD Halifax Jazz Festival (formerly the Atlantic Jazz Festival) is the oldest jazz festival and largest summer festival in the Atlantic region. The event spans two weekends (9 nights, 8 days), attracts up to 65,000 visitors, involves 450 volunteers and employs over 350 local musicians.
Our stages proudly present jazz (the heart and core of our programming) and its relations--world, blues, Latin, hip hop, etc. We are honoured with the distinction as a Hallmark Event by the Halifax Regional Municipality and are currently on a streak of winning Best Festival (an award given by Halifax's weekly arts and culture magazine, The Coast, and voted by their readers).
The Halifax Jazz Festival's caretaker is a membership based, registered charity JazzEast Rising Association and our title sponsor is TD. Dates for 2013 are July 5-13.
