Oakville Jazz Festival
2012 is the 20th year of the Oakville Jazz Festival. A highly successful event, attracting thousands of residents and tourists, this is one Jazz festival that historically has stuck close to its name and presents a wide variety of jazz music. Where many so-called jazz festivals have gone astray in their programming, the Oakville Jazz Festival still presents a line-up primarily focused on the jazz genre. You may get a little world music and some folk content, but generally even those acts appear to have been selected based on their improvisational skills. Over the past few years a blues stage has been introduced as well. Each year there appears to be more blues introduced.
The event plays host to local, regional, national, and international jazz acts. Many big names have appeared here including Jimmy Smith, Warren Hill and Spirogyra. For more information on the performers, past and present, please see the music page.
