To our Festival patrons and visitors, public safety is of the utmost priority for the TD Toronto Jazz Festival. We will continue to monitor the evolving situation to determine the best steps for June. We take great pride in putting on a world-class Festival and will do everything we can to ensure that this year is no different. We are in constant communication with government officials, our partners, venues and musicians to ensure we can provide a safe festival this summer.
The annual post-Festival hibernation period is officially over, and we are now accepting submissions for the 2020 TD Toronto Jazz Festival. We're still ironing out a few date-related logistics, but we're tentatively scheduled for June 19-28, 2020.
