About the Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival

Niagara wine country will be filled with the sounds of jazz when the inaugural Oscar Peterson International Jazz Festival takes place during the weekend of February 16 - 18, 2018. As the world’s first (and only!) jazz festival bearing the name of Canada’s greatest jazz artist, it will honour and celebrate his legacy of excellence. This festival is not intended to simply present concerts in tribute to Oscar Peterson, but rather to truly present jazz, showcasing the rich history and the future of the music Oscar loved.
