“We have lots to celebrate this year,” said Nina Horvath, executive director of the Coastal Jazz & Blues Society in a release. “We’ve programmed over 60 free shows with the best new artists and local jazz luminaries for music lovers to discover. We’re also excited about our new Ocean Art Works venue – it’s sure to be the hot spot of this year’s festival.”

Free Jazz Around Town will showcase talented musicians on stages at the Vancouver Art Gallery, David Lam Park, Performance Works, Ocean Art Works, and The Ironworks throughout the 10-day event. There will also be a number of free events at various venues with the North Shore Jazz Series.

Two of the biggest free outdoor presentations — Georgia Stage and Sounds of Youth Stage at the Vancouver Art Gallery (June 25 to 26) and David Lam Park (July 2 to 3) — are expected to draw massive crowds for the free shows.

Some of the artists appearing at free performance venues include the 18-woman jazz ensemble Sister Jazz Orchestra at the Georgia Stage at Vancouver Art Gallery.
