Halifax Jazz Festival
Region: Nova Scotia

Halifax Jazz Festival is the oldest jazz festival and largest summer festival in Atlantic Canada. Designated a Hallmark Event by the Halifax Regional Municipality, the festival attracts up to 55,000 visitors, involves 450 volunteers and employs over 350 local musicians. Over the past 31 years, Halifax Jazz Festival has widened its horizons beyond its signature event to become involved year-round in a diverse range of musical and educational activities. In brief, we think jazz is important to the culture which we'd like to have, and we want to make sure that kind of culture is strong in Halifax, where we love to live.
