Date: Thursday, July 27th

The Beaches Jazz Festival is an annual music festival held in the Toronto Beaches neighborhood. Queen Street East is closed for 15 blocks between Woodbine Avenue and Beech Avenue and more than 30 bands set up on the street and play sets from 7pm to 11pm! Not all of it is jazz (despite the festival name!), but the Toronto All-Star Big Band, Patrick Tevlin and his New Orleans Rhythm, and the Downtown Dixieland Jazz Band are there along with a few bluesy bands that are fun to dance to.
The best way to get to the festival is to take public transit. Grab either the 92 Woodbine bus south from Woodbine Subway Station or the 64 Main Street bus south from Main Street Station to Queen Street.
Feel free to invite anyone who may be interested!
The festival is FREE!
