Applications for the 2023 Markham Jazz Festival are now closed

The deadline for submissions each year is March 1. We will begin accepting submission for 2024 after this year’s festival (August 18-20, 2023).

As a small festival, we are unable to follow up on every submission. If we are interested in programming your group, we will contact you. Thank you!

Please note that we are a small, volunteer-run jazz festival and we cannot respond to artists/agents checking in on the status of their submission. Artists from outside Ontario wishing to perform should be aware that we generally do not pay travel expenses and we’d likely need you to have some kind of tour support before we could consider you.
