Description & Services
Description The 20th annual Markham Jazz Festival will take place on August 16-20, 2017 starting with our ticketed Opening Night Concert at the Varley Art Gallery on Wednesday evening, August 16th presenting songstress Barbara Lica. From Thursday night to Sunday night, all concerts are FREE. Enjoy professional high-quality performances during the evenings of August 17 and 18, and then three stages of jazz and blues on August 19 and 20 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.
