EVENTS — Tofino Jazz Festival
Tofino Jazz Festival Part will be taking place September 1-2, 2023. This music celebration will bring many different colours of jazz to Tofino. The Festival’s main mission is to provide an opportunity to build community through music: music for the whole community; for all ages; and in venues including free outdoor events.
The Festival also has the mission to introduce youth to jazz music and to give them opportunities for their first professional experience performing as musicians. The Tofino Jazz Festival is a multi-cultural celebration mixing different genres and cultures while providing growth in the arts.
The Tofino Jazz Festival is produced by Sophie L’Homme a professional singer from Montreal that has been living Tofino for the last 7 years.

Sophie also started a singing group of 20 young singers called the Pacific Rim Girls Choir. On top of all her singing activities, she created the Tofino Jazz Festival.
