The First Annual Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival

The inaugural Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival was a huge success, with three sold-out concerts and the exciting presentation of the first Canadian Jazz Master Awards, to guitar legend Ed Bickert, and posthumously awarded to Rob McConnell and Oscar Peterson. The local people of the Niagara region came out in big numbers and audience members traveled from as near as New York and as far away as Paris to attend the festival. Thank you to all the incredible artists, our generous sponsors, and our amazing production team! Mark your calendars now to attend next year’s festival in the gorgeous Niagara-on-the-Lake: February 15-17, 2019!  (photo credit: Daniel Nawrocki)
