PEC Jazz Festival
Every August, the Prince Edward County Jazz Festival presents a week of topnotch live jazz in the county, including many satellite sites, such as wineries, cideries and local hotels and resorts.
The Prince Edward County Jazz Festival celebrates 27 years of excellence in jazz performance and music education, and is recognized as the premier festival in The County. Building on the accomplishments and talent of those who have gone before, the Jazz Festival has grown from a small annual August festival in Picton to a multi-faceted Incorporated Charitable Organization. With a year-round presence, the PEC Jazz Festival: offers high quality performances throughout the County and beyond; provides diverse opportunities for young musicians to learn and perform with experienced mentors; supports a PEC Jazz Ensemble; and offers live streaming of performances; and lectures, clinics and other promotional and educational initiatives.
