Largely considered one of the leading jazz festivals in the Greater Toronto Area, the Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival enters into its’ 20th year this August 10th-12th, 2012. The Downtown Oakville BIA Jazz Committee was ecstatic to hear from Kevin Flynn, MPP that the Downtown Oakville BIA will once again be receiving $75,000 in funding through the Celebrate Ontario 2012 program.

“Each summer, the Jazz Festival draws thousands of residents and tourists to Downtown Oakville providing a substantial boost to our local economy,” says Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn. “With this funding, the BIA can continue to strategically enhance the event programming and ensure another successful event this year. I encourage all to mark the dates on their calendar and make their way to the Downtown Oakville Jazz Festival this August. I’m looking forward to it!” Says Kevin Flynn MPP.

In 2011 the BIA went forward and closed Lakeshore for the second year in a row all day Saturday and strategically increased the event programming for the whole weekend. This brought more people into the downtown core, and for 2012 a headline act will be set in the early afternoon to keep the downtown bustling and to increase the economic impact that Jazz brings to Halton and Oakville and downtown Oakville! Oakville’s downtown core as the venue is a key success factor for the Jazz Festival.
