Jazzy, Jazz, Jazz Fest!

June 20, 2019

We’re just a few short days away from one of Saskatchewan’s best summer music festivals, SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival! The inaugural Saskatchewan Jazz Festival took place in the summer of 1987. Since it’s inception, Sask. Jazz Fest has become one of the largest festivals of its kind in Western Canada, bringing music fans the sounds of jazz, blues, funk, pop and world music over the course of 10 days.
