The story of Coastal Jazz and Blues Society is the story of determination, passion, idealism, community, and of course, music. Founded in 1985, in 1986 incorporated  as a community-based, not-for-profit, charitable arts organization located in Vancouver, British Columbia. From the very beginning, the society has worked diligently to establish Vancouver as a centre for the creation and exchange of sounds and ideas between the local, national, and international music communities.

The mission of the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival is to not only increase the appreciation of the music, but to strengthen the arts community by developing special projects, artistic exchanges, partnerships, educational initiatives, community programs, and collaborations that further the art form. The vision encompasses a wide spectrum of jazz, blues, world, creative, and improvised music, including evolving forms of jazz and the technologies and media that influence jazz as an art form.

Today, the Society ranks as BC’s largest not-for-profit music presenter producing the annual TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, Bright Moments series, and year-round concerts, as well as presenting local, national, and international artists five nights a week at Frankie’s Jazz Club. Along with music presentation, the society also has a long-standing commitment to music education, presenting the TD High School Jazz Intensive Program exclusively for high school students, the Sounds of Youth performance stage, regular workshops by local visiting international artists including the monthly Cool School: Get Hip to Jazz series, children’s music programs, and more.

The Society is also a significant part of Vancouver and BC’s economic engine and tourism industry, attracting over half a million people to the annual jazz festival and generating over $43 million in economic activity.
