Submissions now being accepted for the 2020 Festival

The annual post-Festival hibernation period is officially over, and we are now accepting submissions for the 2020 TD Toronto Jazz Festival. We're still ironing out a few date-related logistics, but we're tentatively scheduled for June 19-28, 2020.

While our submission deadline each year is December 15, if you are a Canadian artist hoping to tour three or more Canadian jazz festivals with the support of the Canada Council, it is urgent that you send your Festival submission as soon as possible. The only Canada Council touring deadline we can support is September 10th - results for all other deadlines will be announced too late in our programming cycle. With that in mind, we need to receive submissions from Canadian artists hoping to tour Canada by next Wednesday, September 4th. Information about the Circulation and Touring program is available here.

Whether you are hoping to tour Canada or stay closer to home, when making a submission to the Festival, we strongly recommend using our online submission form - it is the easiest way for you to submit all of the required information, and for us to keep track of submissions. Complete submission details, including a link to the online form, are available here.

Should you have any questions about the submission process please contact Artistic Director Josh Grossman at or (416) 928-2033 ext. 27.

We look forward to receiving your submission!
