SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival Announces 2023 Dates & New Venue
The SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival is excited to announce the 36th annual festival, taking place from June 30 – July 9, 2023 in its new home at Victoria Park.
“As we return to full-scale operations in the post-COVID era, our festival model must evolve in order to provide the highest quality of programming at the best possible value for our patrons”, said Executive Director, Shannon Josdal. “While we will miss our old home at the Bessborough Gardens, moving the TD Mainstage and festival grounds to Victoria Park will allow us to create a heightened festival experience while keeping ticket prices reasonable.”
In addition to a new festival location, the 2023 SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival will feature 6 days of completely free programming followed by 4 days of ticketed programming on a day pass system. Patrons will be able to purchase 1, 2, 3, or 4 day passes that offer full access to all festival programming on their chosen days.
“We are so excited to offer more free programming and a simplified ticketing experience in this beautiful park,” said Josdal. “Ultimately, our goal is to make the festival more accessible. One ticket for everything, all day. Victoria Park has the space and location to make that possible and we can’t wait to welcome Saskatoon to our new festival site.”
The 2023 festival line up and on sale date will be announced in the spring.
