Oakville Jazz Festival August 5, 6, 7
The annual Oakville Jazz Festival, entering it's 19th year, will get underway tonight at 5:30pm when Toronto All Star Big Band take the stage at Towne Square. The event is a great draw for people from all over Ontario, boasting some great jazz, restaurant patios, and over 200 boutique shops in the downtown Oakville shopping district. More than 40 performers will fill the 6 stages, with the last show ending at 7:00pm on Sunday on the Centennial stage.
This years event received $75,000 in government funding through the Celebrate Ontario 2011 program. The money will be used by the downtown Oakville BIA to further develop the event and ensure that tourists and locals alike will enjoy themselves once they arrive. This is a great sign that the government still values local festivals, and with Wellington West Capital Inc. signing on as the official Gold Sponsor through 2013, the Oakville Jazz festival is in good shape for years to come.
