The Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival is a multi-day event with a mandate to enrich cultural life by bringing emerging and established jazz acts and visual art together to the beautiful and quaint Village of Fort Langley, British Columbia. Established in 2018, the festival draws thousands of residents and visitors to the streets of Fort Langley during the last weekend in July. The annual summertime festival features multiple outdoor stages featuring free world-class jazz performances, headliner ticketed concerts, strolling street bands, Jazz Around Town performances at local restaurants, interactive art activities, a family zone featuring music and art activities, an Indigenous art and culture showcase, and a Jazz Education Workshop for youth.
