Ninth Blues and Jazz Festival is June 2 to 5

ORANGEVILLE - The annual Blues and Jazz Festival begins here on June 2 and offers a variety of events for visitors.

The gala opening is June 2.  On June 3 it is Blues, Jazz, and classic cars.

June 4 offers music, motorcycles and Downchild Blues Band.

On the Sunday, there is a closing party at TJ’s Hangar Sports Grill with Jerome Godboo.

The Orangeville Blues and Jazz Festival has established a reputation as “the place to be in the first weekend in June” and was recently recognized as one of Ontario’s Top 100 Festivals by Festivals and Events Ontario.

In 2010, the festival attracted over 30,000 visitors to The Hills of Headwaters region. In 2011 it will offer an expanded program.
