About PEC Jazz Fest

Since 2001, the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival has been bringing together top jazz musicians, from local talent to international stars in our beautiful wine-country setting. The event has gained a reputation as the true jazz-lover’s festival,  with programming that ranges from classic to cutting edge modern and everything in between.

In 2019, the Festival expanded its youth education programs with the creation of the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival Youth Ensemble (PECJYE). ​The PECYJE will provide outstanding high school musicians the opportunity to further develop their musicianship through rehearsing and performing in a small jazz ensemble.

With great regret, organizers of the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival have decided the Festival will not proceed this year because of public health uncertainty amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The foremost concern is on the audiences and performers safety. Organisers considered scenarios for limited outdoor shows, and concluded that they can not reasonably plan for a festival that is both safe and of the quality to which the festival’s attendees have become accustomed.

The work on 2021 PEC Jazz Fest has already begun!  Check for updates.
