TD Toronto Jazz Festival Returns to Bloor-Yorkville

Bloor-Yorkville is a proud sponsor of the TD Toronto Jazz Festival and we’re thrilled to welcome them back to the neighbourhood for their 37th season! Summer truly kicks off once the festivals start and we’re proud to be a part of this fantastic event. From June 21st – to June 30th, we invite you to experience ten days and over 100 free, spectacular jazz performances from some of the most celebrated artists.

Join us as we celebrate summer, enjoy free concerts, and explore the best that Bloor-Yorkville has to offer! The Toronto Downtown Jazz Society is committed to supporting Canadian and emerging talent, and to providing free programming for the public. The TD Toronto Jazz Festival is one of the ways they bring this goal to fruition, lending vibrancy and excitement to the City, while offering talented performers the chance to shine. We hope to see you out enjoying the shows!

TD Toronto Jazz Festival Free Outdoor Performances

Bloor-Yorkville is home to two outdoor performance venues during the festival! Join us in The Village (within the Village of Yorkville Park) at the “TD Village Stage” and at the OLG Grove (at Charles St and St Thomas) at the “TD Main Stage.” Both The Village and the OLG Grove offer a mix of standing and seating options.

Please note, seating is limited at the OLG Grove and eventgoers are encouraged to bring their own blankets or folding chairs. Each venue is licensed for food and beverage, making for a true summertime festival feel.
