Get ready Nanaimo! The 2nd annual Nanaimo International Jazz Festival is happening September 21 to 23. For 3 days and nights Nanaimo’s downtown will be hopping with the beats and grooves of live jazz.
Traveling all the way from New York City is the “Charles Mingus Dynasty Quintet” to headline the Festival’s main attraction at the Port Theater Saturday night.
Some of our favourites happening again this year are the Friday night Jazz & Swing Dance featuring the NMA Band and Saturday afternoon’s New Orleans-style “secondline” parade starting off in the Old City Quarter – both of which you don’t want to miss!
Kicking off Sunday morning’s program, we have the Freedom Gospel Choir featuring Shalema Gantt.
