The TD Markham Jazz Festival first launched in 1998 thanks to a team of volunteers acting under the leadership and invention of local residents, Hal Hill— a well-known broadcaster, concert producer, author (Jazz Canadiana), and all-around jazz genre authority — and his wife Chris. The Festival prides itself on presenting a diverse and eclectic selection of jazz performers from Canada and around the world within a range of sub-styles, including blues, soul, Latin, fusion, world and contemporary.


Previous years have featured Internationally renowned and award-winning artists such as David Clayton-Thomas, Maceo Parker, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Bruce Cockburn, Jack De Keyzer, John Pizzarelli, Marc Jordan, Dr Lonnie Smith, Molly Johnson, Barbra Lica, Carol Welsman, Oliver Jones, Rob McConnell, Jeff Healey, and many more.

The 22nd TD Annual Markham Jazz Festival is this August 16 - 18, 2019 at venues throughout Markham. The Opening Night Concert is Wednesday, August 14th at the Markham Museum, 9350 Markham Road, Markham.
