About JazzFest

About Us

Sponsored and operated by the Regina Jazz Society, JazzFest Regina is an annual event intended to introduce the world of Jazz in all its forms to the city’s many residents. Every summer, JazzFest will showcase many up and coming local and Canadian Jazz musicians along with several internationally known and renowned “Headliners”. This multi-day event will give all in Regina an opportunity to see and hear some of the best jazz music available today. JazzFest is made available to Regina only through the work of many volunteers and the support of a number of sponsors to which we are more than grateful. Check out our “Sponsors” and “Volunteers” recognition pages on this site to view those who have helped JazzFest become a success and part of the Regina landscape – we thank you.

History

2017 is the 9th year of the JazzFest event in Regina. We started slow during the first year but momentum has been increasing at an exciting pace – already for this year we have many musicians wanting to be part of the event – and many more people wanting to help than in years past.

Future Plans

Our plans are to make JazzFest a week long, cultural event in and throughout Regina. In addition to the outside “Stage” shows we now present, their will be additional performances during this week in the evenings at a number of clubs throughout the city along with opportunities for patrons and supporters of JazzFest and the Jazz Society to socialize with the entertainers at local private gatherings. Our plans for this event as support for it grows, will be to bring in more (quantity) and more top quality artists from throughout Canada and internationally. The more we are supported, the more we can bring to the city.
