The Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival

"The Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival stands poised to become one of Canada’s most anticipated winter music events, and we are fortunate to have the magnificent Niagara wine region be our host. Just like the many, individual elements that contribute to the production of a signature bottle of wine, our one of a kind artist line-ups, featuring the best of both Canadian and American performers, are creating truly memorable listening experiences for all!" 

- Renee Rosnes, Artistic Director



"Oscar Peterson festival brings true jazz to Ontario"
- Peter Goddard, The Globe and Mail

"A grand festival to celebrate the genius of Oscar Peterson"
