Edmonton Jazz Festivals
In 1980, the Edmonton Jazz Society established the Jazz City International Jazz Festival in response to an initiative from Alberta Culture on the occasion of the province's 75th anniversary. Between 1980 to 1983 the Edmonton Jazz Society produced the first four annual Jazz City festivals.
In 2005 the Edmonton Jazz Society staged the Yardbird Jazz Festival, and in 2006 co-produced the event with the newly established Edmonton Jazz Festival Society.
Since June 2007, the Edmonton Jazz Festival Society has been presenting the Edmonton International Jazz Festival.
Since November 2007, the Edmonton Jazz Society presents the Yardbird Jazz Festival dedicated exclusively to Canadian performers.
