Brampton's Getting a Massive Jazz Festival Soon


It’s back for another year!

If you love jazz, dancing, or festivals in general, this one’s for you.

The World of Jazz festival is making its way back to Brampton on September 7 and 8 this year across downtown Brampton, at The Rose, Garden Square, Vivian Lane, Wendel Clark’s, and J. Red & Co.

A ton of performers and fun events are lined up for Friday and Saturday, with most events happening all day on Saturday.

On Friday night, the festival kicks off with a concert featuring JUNO-nominated pianist Michael Kaeshammer at 8 p.m. at  The Rose.

Then, on Saturday afternoon, the jazz starts at the downtown Brampton farmers’ market with The Yonge Kings.

From 1:30-10 p.m. in Garden Square, two stages will be set up and play host to a lineup of jazz performers.

Here’s what the day looks like on the event website:

Over in Vivian Lane from 1-10 p.m. you’ll find the Long and McQuade Musical Petting Zoo, where you can try a bunch of different instruments.

If you’re into evening events, you can catch the Devin Patten Trio at J. Red & Co from 7-10 p.m.

And finally a late night jam is taking over Wendel Clark’s starting at 11 p.m.

You’ll find the Frank Adriano Quartet on the ground floor, and Travis Knights & Jazz United on the second floor.

The event is free to attend, and last year’s World of Jazz saw a huge crowd all day.
