Festival Description

The Pender Harbour Jazz Festival first took place in 1995. The 15th annual Pender Harbour Jazz Festival will take place September 16, 17 & 18, 2011 and we’re going to have a party. Dine and Dance to Don Stewart, get your Big Band on with Jesse Cahill’s Night Crawlers and the Cellar Jazz Orchestra; get down with Juno award winning Blues Band FATHEAD. Catch the Amanda Tosoff Quintet, hot latin jazz with Santa Lucian, Swing, Gypsy, Ukulele (we kid you not!), Boogie Woogie, Contemporary, Fusion and Modern: something for everyone to hear and love. There are 29 events, with only four ticketed. Plan to be there! on the Sunshine Coast only two scenic hours from Vancouver.

Practical Info:

  • 2 hours north of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Pender Harbour is a community on the Sunshine Coast in southern British Columbia, Canada. Its inhabitants are spread out over the harbour in Francis Peninsula, Kleindale, Garden Bay and the harbour’s main centre, Madeira Park. Located midway along the Sunshine Coast. From downtown Vancouver, you have to take a 40-minute drive to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. After a 40-minute ferry ride across magnificent Howe Sound to the Langdale/Gibsons terminal, a half-hour drive up Hwy 101 brings you to the town of Sechelt. Another half-hour drive, and you’re at the Madeira Park turnoff, and in the heart of Pender Harbour.
  • For detailed maps and accommodation information, we suggest you swing by, and to find out more about the Sunshine Coast
  • Seven ticketed venues, 23 free (dinner reservations may be required) venues (delightful, intimate outdoor and indoor venues)
