Jazz at the Lake

Jul 12, 2022

Sylvan Lake has a rich musical history, much greater in scope than its relatively small, but rapidly growing, population would seem to warrant. The legendary days of the Varsity Hall with its traveling Alberta and Canadian bands are warmly remembered by many in the community. The town has fostered some of the country’s best jazz artists.

Now Jazz at the Lake is celebrating its 20th year with multiple musical events. You can buy tickets online for certain performances, others are free. See tickets here: http://www.jazzatthelake.com/?product_cat=tickets

And we are still accepting volunteers! http://www.jazzatthelake.com/?page_id=163
