The sixth annual Jazz in the Park returns to Niagara-on-the-Lake this Saturday.

Part of the TD Niagara Jazz Festival, the free day-long event is at Simcoe Park on July 27, from 11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

There will be three stages featuring 17 bands and 56 artists who will perform throughout the day. The artists include John Sherwood, Graham Lear, Miguel de Armas, Nick Mclean, Los Hijos de Tuta and others.

There will also be a dance floor, a children’s petting zoo, and food and artisan vendors as well as a TD activation zone where people will be able to make their own music, said festival spokesperson Darlene Kertcher.

People are also encouraged to bring their own lawn chairs.

The TD Niagara Jazz festival was co-created by Juliet Dunn and Peter Shea, a duo of Niagara-based jazz musicians.
