Got a flare for fashion? So does the Jazz Man, and he's ready to hit up the Artisans Village at the Festival this year. So come jazz up your summer wardrobe with him this summer and check out the Artisans Village at Nathan Phillips Square, June 21 to 28.

Open from 12 to 8 p.m., this fashionable fair features an eclectic selection of hand-made jewelry, scarves, décor and more. Enjoy more than a dozen artisan boutiques while jammin' out to live performances from Lighthouse, Laila Biali and Elizabeth Shepherd and more.

For additional information please contact:

“The combination of connecting to a cultured clientele in a central outdoor setting filled with music is unique. Not only have I sold my work consistently to a diverse clientele, I have had people contact me months afterwards based on what they saw at the festival. It’s a great way to expand your client base and contacts, and I hope to continue doing so at the new contemporary jewellery art fair.” - Participating Artist, Artisans Village, TD Toronto Jazz Festival
