Coastal Jazz and Blues Society is a community-based, non-profit, charitable arts organization located in Vancouver, British Columbia. Since 1986 Coastal Jazz and Blues Society has contributed vigorously to the local, national and international jazz scene. Our 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.

Coastal Jazz & Blues Society produces the annual TD Canada Trust Vancouver International Jazz Festival, the Time Flies Improvised Music Festival and dozens of concerts through out the year.

The TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, produced by Coastal Jazz, celebrates its 29th anniversary June 20 - July 1, 2014.
