BECOME A SPONSOR

Help support this unique Festival of Free Jazz Music


Every year, our non-profit organization offers world-class free Jazz in Waterloo attracting over 33,000 people, of all ages and demographics, who come to the festival to enjoy the music of local and global top rate talent.


This year, the festival will run from July 22-24 at Waterloo City Centre. Talent this year will be next to none! In commemoration of this milestone year, we are exploring “jazz is...!” – a community discussion about what jazz means. Our goal this year is to achieve $100,000 in sponsorship dollars.


We would like to invite you to celebrate the festival’s milestone with us by committing your support through sponsorship. There are many different opportunities to highlight your brand. We are confident you will find a sponsorship package to fit your needs! Without you, we cannot be as good as we are and for that, we are truly thankful! Please help us to grow the festival as we invest in our youth by continuing to develop the future of our local talent.
