Unionville, ON, L3R 9W6

In 1997, local residents, Hal Hill and his wife Chris, came up the idea of a holding a jazz festival in Markham. Hal is a well known jazz authority, broadcaster, concert producer and the author of Jazz Canadiana. With the assistance of a team of volunteers, the Markham Jazz Festival made its debut in 1998 to critical acclaim. That first year saw Oliver Jones perform at the Markham Theatre on Friday night and concerts in Toogood Pond Park just north of the Varley Art Gallery in Unionville on Saturday and Sunday. Since Hal’s retirement, the Markham Jazz Festival has strived to maintain the high quality of performers that Hal insisted upon during his tenure as Artistic Director. Our thanks go to Hal for his dedication over the years.
