The First Muskoka Jazz Festival Has Been Cancelled


In a statement released of the festival website:

It is with a heavy heart that we have had to cancel this year’s Muskoka Jazz Festival.

We began this project with the objective of bringing Muskoka a unique event featuring some of Canada’s finest musical talent and had achieved objective in securing the support and commitment of a number of the best artists you will find anywhere in the country.

We thank them for their support.

Unfortunately, the challenges of organizing this first time event proved insurmountable for a number of reasons. Thus, in the best interests of all, we have made the decision to cancel this years event rather than deliver a less than satisfactory audience experience.

We are working with the online ticket seller on the management of refunds and more information on this will be available shortly.
