The wildly popular Markham Jazzlicious WinterFest brings together food lovers and music enthusiasts for special evenings celebrating the culturally rich experiences that City of Markham has to offer. Produced and presented by Destination Markham, the second annual series builds on the overwhelming success of the sold-out 2023 inaugural season which this year includes six events which begin on January 23 rd and run through March 2024 at culinary destinations across the city.

Whether you’re a jazz aficionado or just looking to enjoy some great music, food, drinks, and good
company, Markham Jazzlicious WinterFest is the perfect reason to venture north of Toronto’s
downtown core and discover Markham’s booming culinary and music scene. A diverse city rich in
cultural heritage, Markham is considered one of the fastest-growing cities in Ontario and has
cemented itself as a leading culinary destination within the Greater Toronto Area that regularly
plays host to national and international artists and performers.

collaboration with the Markham Jazz Festival, and in partnership with Cosmo Music,
JAZZ.FM91 radio and Flato Markham Theatre with funding provided by Experience Ontario

Supporting Quotes:
“The inaugural Markham Jazzlicious WinterFest series last year brought visitors from across the
GTA to Markham for these uniquely curated evenings,” says Markham’s Mayor, Frank
Scarpitti. “A program that began as an initiative to support Markham’s culinary sector during the
slower season, quickly became a much talked about cultural event. Residents and visitors to the
city were able to fully experience the exceptional diversity of our culinary offerings alongside
performances by some of the best jazz artists Canada has to offer.”
 
“We are very excited to be bringing back this highly anticipated musical and culinary experience,”
says Destination Markham Executive Director, Eric Lariviere. “Eating out is one of the main
ways we treat ourselves, but diners also want these social occasions to last longer and be about
more than just the cuisine. The addition of an intimate performance by some of this country’s
celebrated jazz artists paired with the culinary arts of Markham’s best Chefs is the perfect
ingredient to create once-in-a-lifetime experiences for these consumers.”
