SALTY JAM IS TWO DAYS AWAY! – JULY 8-10

Saltyjam, Saint Johns Festival of Music, dates back to 1995 as the Saint John Jazz & Blues Festival. From humble beginnings as a small, modest festival, the event has grown significantly over the last few years, including the following:

Gaining of non-profit status;
Becoming incorporated;
Expansion of free venues;
More shows;
Increased awareness; and
Recognition from all levels of government including Municipal, Provincial and Federal.

Consequently, the festival is also recognized by the following attributes:

Saltyjam is 100% volunteer run;

The Festival includes a combination of world class artists and local talent;

The program includes a combination of free concert series and pay for viewing over multiple venues;

The Festival has become known as the summer music event in Saint John; and

In 2009 the festival received Federal funding through the Building Communities through Arts & Heritage Program, making Saltyjam a recognized cultural event in Canada.

It is the goal of the Organizing Committee to sustain a high quality Festival. As we look forward to the continued opportunity for growth and the future of the Festival we have a created a plan focused on a number of key opportunity areas.

Continued focus on improving the Festival programming making the product relevant to our audience;

Increasing the accessibility of the Festival to the people of southern New Brunswick by expanding outside the downtown core of Saint John; and

Directly marketing to and provide programming for the vast multi-cultural communities in our area.
