The first annual festival was held on Saturday, July 28, 2018 and started with a Mardi Gras parasol strolling parade led by the six-piece Dixieland band, the RazzMaJazz Ensemble, from the Fort Langley Farmers' Market on Glover Road to the main festival stage in front of the Fort Langley Community Hall. Festival activities continued throughout the day.
An impressive line-up of buskers and jazz!
A diverse line-up of swinging world-class jazz bands performed on two outdoor stages from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm: the Fort Langley Community Hall on Glover Road; and the Bedford Plaza boardwalk on Billy Brown Road. Festival visitors also enjoyed talented youth jazz buskers performing at six locations throughout the community.
