TD Ottawa International Jazz Festival June 19 – July 1, 2015

TD Ottawa International Jazz Festival


This annual foray into jazz and surrounding genres is one of the biggest draws during Ottawa’s lively festival season. The TD Ottawa International Jazz Festival mixes big names from the world of jazz with a number of other inimitable artists. The combination of large outdoor concerts at Confederation Park and smaller, intimate shows at indoor spaces like the National Arts Centre’s Fourth Stage allows for variety in look and feel during the 10-day festival.
