Kaslo Jazz Fest
From August 4 - 6 - Kaslo Bay Park hosts the Kaslo Jazz Fest.
This intimate and laid-back world-class festival has been hosting big names and newly discovered gems of the music business since 1992 - and this year, the Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival will once again make use of the astounding acoustics of Kaslo Bay Park to showcase an array of blues, jazz, latin, folk and world music. This year's roster includes folks such as Charles Bradley, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, A Tribe Called Red, The Sheepdogs, Fred Penner and BADBADNOTGOOD - all will be performing on the fest's unique floating stage that transforms the bay into a natural green amphitheater and sends live music reverberating out over Kootenay Lake. All weekend long, world-class musicians perform against our breathtaking backdrop of mountains and sky.
Selected as one of the “Top ten places to get out doors and be in tune,” by USA Today in 2007, and one of the “Top 10 places to enjoy outdoor summer music” by REUTERS in 2013, the Kaslo Bay floating stage has been recognized as one of the premier outdoor music venues in the world. kaslojazzfest.com/
