About Belleville Downtown Jazz Festival

1st Annual Belleville Jazz Festival

Put some sizzle in your summer this Labour Day weekend at the 1st Annual Belleville Downtown Jazz Festival!

Festival organizer Howard Rees-a Toronto-born, New York-trained jazz pianist with deep ties to Bay of Quinte Country-brings the sounds of New Orleans, New York, and Havana to Belleville. Based on his earlier success directing festivals in the Distillery District of Toronto, and a vocal jazz collaboration with the Hastings Prince Edward School Board in 2019, Howard felt the time was right.
