For 2023, the Kaslo Jazz Festival celebrated its 30th anniversary, in a big way! Set in Kaslo Bay Park, the natural acoustics of this venue make for excellent shows.

But don't just take our word—here's what other big entertainment media outlets have said:

One of the “Top ten places to get out doors and be in tune" - USA Today
