NEW: PRIDE COLLABORATION

We are showing our pride and celebrating unity in 2017 as we partner with the Saskatoon Pride Festival on Saturday, June 24th. The first Saturday of the Jazz Festival overlaps with the 25th edition of Saskatoon Pride Festival, creating a unique opportunity to bridge events. For more information on Pride YXE visit their website.

The parade has a new route through downtown Saskatoon from 1pm until 2:30pm culminating on 21st Street and 4th Avenue near the Delta Bessborough Hotel. View the route map here. Following the parade the PotashCorp Free Stage (now located in Kiwanis Park North) will provide music with a day co-programmed by Pride and the Jazz Festival. 

Creating meaningful partnerships that celebrate and showcase the diversity of our community makes the Jazz Festival a dynamic event and strong organization, " said Kevin Tobin, Artistic Director of the Jazz Festival.

NEW: JAZZ GOES COUNTRY

This Sunday evening the Jazz Festival goes country. Openers: Elly Thorn, The Dead South, and The Chris Buck Band. Headliner: Brett Kissel. The 25-year-old singer/songwriter has been the country music story of the past few years – winning a JUNO Award for “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” – the first country artist to win the coveted award in 17 years. He also has Canadian Country Music Association Awards, a Canadian Radio Music Award, on top of five Association of Country Music in Alberta Awards, and two Edmonton Music Awards. Brett Kissel is no stranger to Saskatoon, he loves it here and spends a lot of time in the bridge city. His manager Louis O'Reilly lives here, and his longtime producer Bart McKay runs his studio here, so many of Brett's hits have been recorded right here in #yxe.
