2020 TD Markham Jazz Festival:
Cancellation Announcement and Alternate Plans

The TD Markham Jazz Festival (TDMJF) regrets, that in keeping with Covid-19 guidelines, and to ensure that our audiences, volunteers and artists remain safe, we have decided to cancel this year’s festival, which was to take place August 14-16. However, we recognize that jazz in all its genres brings joy to listeners – and never was this more important than now, during this pandemic, where we cannot gather in mass to celebrate all that our music has to offer. 

And so, TDMJF is pleased to announce that we will be bringing jazz to all of our patrons in the form of a combined live and virtual concert series that will take place from the end of September 2020 to the end of March 2021.

We intend to conduct a series of 6 or 7 live, small, public health friendly, concerts once a month from September to March in various locations around Markham. While the schedule and details are not yet finalized, these concerts will include pub venues, jam sessions, and other formats. Where possible and appropriate, these concerts will include live audiences (numbers of attendees permitted will be based on Provincial Health guidelines) and will also be livestreamed, and able to be accessed later at your convenience through various mediums (Facebook, YouTube and from our MJF website).

A limited number of tickets to attend these concerts will be available for purchase at times closer to each respective event.  

Schedule and dates to be announced mid-to-late July.

We invite you to remain informed by regularly consulting your email, our website, as well as our social media vehicles Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Thank you for your ongoing interest and support of live jazz in Markham!  

Please stay safe!
Your TDMJF Committee.
The TD Markham Jazz Festival is a not-for-profit organization with a mandate to enrich cultural life in the region by bringing emerging and established jazz artists to Markham for all to enjoy. Established in 1998, the festival draws more than 25,000 residents and visitors to the streets of Unionville during the third weekend in August. Local and international artists deliver over 30 open-air performances during the weekend as well as in selected “hot spots” and at a ticketed opening-night concert. During the year, the festival hosts “Hot Spot Concerts” at selected venues in Markham. TD Canada Trust became its title sponsor in 2014.
