Pickering Village JAM Festival


There are some things that cross all lines and remove barriers. Music is one of them. The Pickering Jazz Festival that has been held in Pickering Village for some 10 years now is a part of that.

What started as the Pickering Village Jazz Festival has now become something more. And yes, the name has changed to reflect that. We are now known as the Pickering Village JAM (Jazz Arts and Music)Festival. With so much more. Street vendors, and now 4 days and nights of music and entertainment in The Village.

The sharing with the community and people that come here from near and far to enjoy a weekend of music and share in our little community. The Music is the focus point but it’s more than that. It’s something that local residents, and not so local, have come to look forward to over the years. No matter what the weather, they come to listen, dance in the streets, or just sit on the benches to hear some local talent.

Not only limited to Jazz, the repertoire has expanded, as it should. Jazz is a starting point but the fact is, Jazz is a root. A  root for many genres of music that are popular today. R and B, hip hop, street music, Blues, and Rock and Roll.

The greater Toronto area, and Toronto itself has a rich jazz history and a strong well renowned jazz community. We will be featuring some of those artists and their works here, along with news on upcoming events pertaining to the Pickering Village Jazz Festival and happenings in the jazz community around the world. Join us here at Pickering Village Jazz and share the love of the music and all it’s different parts.

We are always on the lookout for a number of things. Talented musicians, young and old, sponsors for portions of the event or stage sponsors, either in kind or with cash donations. Foodies and street vendors are always welcome. Have some craft or art talent you wish to share? Get hold of us to reserve your spot on the street!!
