The Medicine Hat JazzFest is about family fun, dance parties, world-class artists, late night grooving, sunny patios and corner pubs. It's about dancing on a parking garage and in an airport hangar! It 's about connecting with friends and family and meeting new people. It's the 22nd anniversary and JazzFest is celebrating! As winner of the 2010 and 2015 Medicine Hat Chamber of Commerce Tourism Award of Distinction and the 2016 Alberta Business award in Arts and Culture, JazzFest's reputation just keeps spreading! From June 17-24 JazzFest will be presenting many of the same artists that are appearing at Jazz Festivals from Vancouver to Montreal.

With acts like the Chelsea McBride Socialist Night School Big Band, Dutch saxophonist Yuri Honing, and African Dance Band Lynn Olagundoye, JazzFest combines a big city bang with small town charm. And the result is drawing return fans from across Alberta and Saskatchewan and the rest of Canada. Passes offer over $375 worth of tickets for $149.

Follow us on Twitter and IG @medhatjazz. We're at Medicine Hat JazzFest on Facebook. Full details are at and tickets and passes are available at all Esplanade ticket outlets and following the media launch May 10, 2018.  So this June, why not see what all the buzz is about!
