Whistler will be hosting a new festival this year. The Jazz on the Mountain festival is coming to Whistler from September 2nd to 4th over the Labour Day long weekend.


Over the three days there will be ticketed concerts with top international and Canadian jazz artists, a master class series, a street festival with children’s entertainment, family fun and free concerts around Whistler Village.

The Whistler Jazz festival will feature Jazz greats including Kevin Eubanks, Stanley Jordan, The New Gary Burton Quartet, Oliver Jones Trio, Spyro Gyra and The Rippingtons.  These ticketed events will take place in the Whistler Olympic Plaza.  This venue was used in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games for the medal ceremonies.  It is now a stunning outdoor venue with amazing views of Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains.  This venue has a state-of-the-art pavilion and can hold an audience of up to 5000 people.

Tickets are available as a 3 day pass or single day passes and will provide access to the Whistler Olympic Plaza venue from noon until night, with in and out privileges.   Tickets are valid for all shows each day in Whistler Olympic Plaza.

You can relax and enjoy the music at the Whistler Olympic Plaza and visit the Jazz Bistro. Enjoy snacks, cheese, gourmet food, beer, wine and other beverages.

There will be a number of free outdoor and indoor concerts over the weekend around Whistler Village.   Well-known and up-and-coming Canadian jazz performers and acoustic musicians will perform in different locations.

This is going to be a great weekend in Whistler for all the family. The Street Festival in Whistler Village includes face-painters, acrobats, acoustic musicians and jugglers.
