As the award-winning TD Niagara Jazz Festival gears up for its sixth year of thrilling presentations, we are pleased to announce both expanded and brand new events, certain to delight a wide variety of festival-goers.  

One of the most thrilling additions to this year's festival events will be Niagara's Summer Mardi Gras, which will feature live music and entertainment performed by a lineup of fabulous ensembles, including The Shuffle Demons, Heavyweights Brass Band, Turbo Street Funk, and much more.

Live music, dancing, Creole food, magic, vaudeville, Cajun culture, a parade, beads, baubles and feathers are all part of the fun of this mega-watt debut event, which will literally turn Niagara into 'The New Orleans of the North.' New Orleans, Louisiana – The Crescent City - is the literal birthplace of jazz, North America's greatest, and only original art form.
