After the COVID-19 pandemic caused the cancellation of last year’s festival, we’re happy to announce that we are working hard to make the 2021 TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival a reality!
It will be a much smaller festival than what people are used to but it will showcase the best that the Vancouver jazz scene has to offer. More details about the festival format and performers will be rolled out in the coming month or so. As our volunteer needs this year will be just a fraction of what we’ve had in the past, we will not be accepting applications from new volunteers this year.
Starting in mid-April we will be contacting past volunteers in small batches. Please don’t be worried or upset if you are not contacted! We appreciate all of you but many departments will not be activated this year, there will be many fewer shifts, and in order to keep our venue numbers low, volunteers will be asked to wear more than one hat on a single shift.
I look forward to working with some of you this year and to see all of you next year, when we can all gather together in true Coastal Jazz fashion.
