Welcome to the Pickering Village JAM Festival
Pickering Village has hosted a successful street music festival for over 20 years. The history and wealth of talent in this community has captured the hearts of music lovers everywhere. Pickering Village Community Events is a non profit organization dedicated to keeping this festival going and growing for over the past 9 years. With the support of the Pickering Village BIA, the Town of Ajax, major corporate Sponsors like Elexicon, OPG and OLG, as well as TD Bank and now Global News, JAM is definitely growing more than ever!
Partnered with PLC, the founders & organizers of the world renowned Beaches Jazz Festival and others, and with our own Musical Director Jamie Shear, of Shear Entertainment, our little Festival that could is seriously building momentum. The wide variety of local talent, and diversity of musical genres from jazz to blues to rock and roll, keeps all of our guests engaged and entertained.
The assortment of restaurants, bistros, and food trucks provide the nourishment and guilty pleasures we all crave on festival grounds, and the participation of community groups helps to build a sense of belonging and understanding for all who share our neighbourhoods. Visit the little boutiques, salons, and offices that make our little Village so welcoming and inviting. So we encourage you to grab a beverage, take a stroll and dance in the street if you like. We won’t mind a bit.
