Originally founded in 2001, Port Hope Jazz has been a showcase for Canadian talent for over 15 years, offering live Canadian music to the Port Hope Community as well as our visitors from across Ontario. After a brief hiatus we re-launched in August 2022 and have a spectacular program planned August 25th, 26th and 27th 2023. Mark your calendar for the 4th weekend of August for our annual Port Hope Jazz event.
Our goal is to grow in 2024 expanding into additional local venues and adding more Canadian artists. We are in the midst of planning an exciting 2024 with more of a festival atmosphere with fun for the entire family. This is made possible by the support of people like you. Music bonds our community together and we are excited to bring even more to Port Hope and our visitors in 2024. Thank you for your support.
We strive to be Canada's premier national Jazz Festival for celebration of diversity of Canadian Jazz arts excellence and to promote youth program development within a vibrant musical, economic and cultural atmosphere.
