2018 Merrickville’s Jazz Fest


Tickets are now on sale for the eighth annual edition of Merrickville’s Jazz Fest (MJF) taking place in venues around the village from Thursday, October 11 to Sunday, October 14, 2018. We are excited to present many opportunities to enjoy great musicians again this year.

With a great selection of styles, featuring up and coming young artists, and outstanding seasoned performers from Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, we’re sure you will find there is something for everyone.

Please join us on Thursday for our Grand Opening & Sponsor Appreciation featuring Vocals & Violin with Karen Oxorn. Open to all those in possession of a ticket or pass for the festival.  Wine, beer and hors d’œuvres, will be complimentary.

Our Saturday Swing Night is sure to delight with Peter Liu and the Pollcats; one of the most popular vintage swing bands in Ottawa, known for inspiring excitement and joy in both listeners and dancers.

The popular Sunday morning Jazz Worship returns this year with Ripple Effect. This is a non-ticketed ecumenical event.

On Sunday night we are proud to present the amazing Juno Award winner Kellylee Evans. Still shaking it up with, Come On, her latest Decca album; this stylistic connoisseur has tackled everything from jazz to R&B and pop. This is a show you won’t want to miss!

In response to the increasing popularity of our restaurant shows, Merrickville’s Jazz Fest will be offering concurrent shows at the Baldachin Inn and The Goose & Gridiron restaurants. Two fantastic, albeit different style artists are booked for the three evenings; now with a 90 minute performance, providing for more time to relax and enjoy the show and a meal. When you purchase your tickets and passes this year, you will be offered a choice of a restaurant event. Reservations for these restaurant venues are by ticket only. With limited seating available at both venues, we encourage you to make your selection early.

Please visit our website merrickvillesjazzfest.com for more details on our stellar lineup, program information and online ticket sales. Tickets are also available at the Knock Knock Shoppe in Merrickville.

See you at Merrickville’s Jazz Fest 2018!
