Free Winnipeg Jazz Festival Events
June 19-June 24
The Free Opening Weekend is over but the free events aren’t done yet. We have The Cube Lounge every night, Jazz for Lunch and TD Jazz Labs.
The Cube Lounge
We love spending time in Old Market Square with you all so much — this year we’ll be in The Cube Lounge all week! From June 20 to June 24, come sip a glass of wine, lean back in your chair, and enjoy the weather in the open air or under a shaded tent with us. Come spend those first days of summer in Winnipeg’s only outdoor pop-up jazz lounge. Get close to the music in an intimate setting for a jazz experience like no other.

Jazz For Lunch
The Jazz for Lunch series features a free noon-hour concert at the Cube Stage in Old Market Square on weekdays during the festival. It’s a great place to spend your lunch hour or meet up with friends.
TD Jazz Labs @ Rachel Brown Theatre
The TD Jazz Labs are a series of workshops geared towards emerging jazz musicians. The workshops cover a wide range of topics from repertoire to music technique to the business of being a touring artist.
It’s a great opportunity to get up close and personal with the musicians you admire in an intimate venue and learn a few tricks of the trade. As always, the TD Jazz Labs are free and open to the public thanks to the generous support of TD, Manitoba Music, and Canadian Heritage.
