Kaslo Jazz Etc. Festival


Astounding acoustics in a natural green amphitheater... Our floating stage has been recognized as one of the premier outdoor music venues in the world.

This intimate and laid-back world-class festival has been hosting big names and newly discovered gems of the music business since 1991.

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. Our unique floating stage transforms Kaslo Bay Park 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.

Festival goers dance in the sand, swim around the stage, or relax in the grass and enjoy the delicious offerings of local food and drink vendors. The intimate, laid-back vibe of this festival seduces audiences and performers alike, so come discover the magic, and "Get Real" in the Kootenays this summer.

The Kaslo Jazz Etc Festival occurs every August long weekend in Kaslo Bay Park. It is a family-friendly festival that showcases a variety of genres, focusing on exceptional musical talent.
