Medicine Hat Jazz Fest Celebrates 10th Anniversary

Medicine Hat’s JazzFest celebrates their 10th Anniversary with an outstanding festival lineup for their June 19 – 25th, 2006 event.

Featuring a first class array of local, regional and international jazz talent in various locations throughout the city, the festival schedule includes concerts, workshops, and free noon hour performances.

Over the last ten years, The Medicine Hat JazzFest has grown from a grassroots community-based event to a widely recognized world-class festival in Western Canada, and the tenth anniversary promises to be a banner year for the organization.
