This intimate and laid-back world-class music festival has been hosting big names and newly discovered gems of the music business since 1992.
This year, the Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival will once again make use of the astounding acoustics of Kaslo Bay Park to showcase an array of blues, jazz, latin, folk, world music and much more. Our unique floating stage transforms Kaslo Bay Park into a natural green amphitheater and sends live music reverberating out over Kootenay Lake. All weekend long, world-class musicians perform against our breathtaking backdrop of mountains and sky.
Selected as one of the “Top ten places to get out doors and be in tune,” by USA Today, and one of the “Top 10 places to enjoy outdoor summer music” by REUTERS, the Kaslo Bay floating stage has been recognized as one of the premier outdoor music venues in the world.
Festival goers dance in the sand, swim around the stage, or relax in the grass and enjoy the delicious offerings of local food and drink vendors. The intimate, laid-back vibe of this festival seduces audiences and performers alike. So come discover the magic of the Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival, and the culture of the Kootenay’s in the summer!
