Ontario Place has partnered with Toronto Undergraduate Jazz Fest (TUJF) and SING! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival to offer what just might be Canada's longest summer live music festival this year, at the city’s waterfront park.


The Ontario Place Summer Live Music Festival will offer live and digital performances that begin July 29 and wrap with the final performances over the Labour Day weekend that runs through Monday, September 6 for a total of 35 days.

All performance are organized in collaboration with OPSLMF partners. Thursdays and Sundays are programmed by TUJF, a non-profit organization that offers opportunities for youth and emerging musicians in Canada. The first Friday features Francophone music, while all other Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons are programmed by SING! The Toronto Vocal Arts Festival, Canada’s festival dedicated to promoting vocal artists with its focus on a cappella music. Saturday evenings will feature Indigenous artists, organized by Elaine Bomberry and Ian Terry. Bomberry is an Indigenous performing arts activist, promoter, manager, TV and radio producer.
