HISTORY

In 2006, the newly-formed Edmonton Jazz Festival Society partnered with the Jazz Society of the Yardbird Suite to create the Yardbird Jazz Festival. In 2007, it became the TD Edmonton International Jazz Festival that we all know and love. The name may have changed but the aim is the same -- to bring the best jazz musicians in the world to Edmonton and support and spotlight the city’s homegrown talent.
