TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival 2018: Event Guide

With the end of June approaching and the warm weather slowly becoming a mainstay in Vancouver, it means two things; it’s summertime and TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival is here.

2018 marks the 33rd installment of the city-wide event and is a grand amalgamation of solid music, intense planning, and building on those years of steady growth. This years noted highlights include Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant, American R&B singer Macy Gray, Alabama soul band St. Paul and the Broken Bones, and Los-Angeles-native jazz saxophonist/composer Kamasi Washington.

Today is the official start of the festivities. So, we have taken some time to list out all the events happening around town, for your convenience.
