Jazz on the Patio - great line up, four shows and a unique seating set up. Kudos to BPAC for pulling this off

Jazz on the Patio at the Performing Arts centre has been one of those rare summer treats. The music was always fine, when they put in a cash bar it became an opportunity to enjoy a rather decent Chardonnay – in a Styrofoam cup – can’t have everything.

We missed the event last year.

A much different setting this year – two performances each day.


It is back this year – runs from Saturday, August 14 & Sunday, August 15, 2021 with two performances each day.  Rain or Shine – BPAC Outdoor Plaza.

The Downtown Jazz Festival will be a ticketed event this year.

COVID guidelines require all outdoor events to be ticketed for contact-tracing and self-screening purposes.

The 2021 Jazz Festival will also be a paid event this year, both because we are just beginning to emerge from the financial challenges of the pandemic, including 15 months without our usual sources of revenue being available to us, and because current capacity restrictions are only permitting us to accommodate a maximum of 120 patrons, rather than the pre-pandemic audiences of 300 – 400 that we typically see for these performances.

The ticket prices are nominal. The event is being staged as a very intimate (while physically-distanced!) environment, which will not be visible from the street. Together with the BDBA they will be offering prize draws to patrons; local restaurants will also be selling special meals onsite.

It’s going to be a very special event; exciting, and a long-overdue return to live entertainment in downtown Burlington!
