Founded in 1987, this swinging music festival is always arranged for the first weekend of July when the summer is at its most glorious. Though growing over the years, Baltic Jazz has always managed to preserve its original cordiality and elevated mood with a balanced blend of classical jazz, blues and rock music in the unique old ironworks milieu of Taalintehdas.

The Baltic Jazz festival is a meeting place for jazz artists of international fame and local talents, as well as a get-together for tourists, boaters, vacationers and local residents. The diverse program offers something for family members of all ages!
We welcome you to take part in the Baltic Jazz Festival and its diverse thrills by the sea!
This splendid festival has been entertaining large audiences with top quality jazz since 1969. The hallmarks of this event are a contemporary atmosphere and all forms of jazz music from swing to free jazz. Concerts will take place in the indoor venues and clubs of the city centre.
This annual event brings blues enthusiasts and music fans to Järvenpää at the end of June to enjoy an authentic blues atmosphere. Five days of top class music will culminate in the main concert on the festival Saturday. The rhythms can also be enjoyed at popular clubs and in the downtown Blues Street area throughout the festival week. This family-friendly festival is organised by a dedicated group of volunteers.
Every year our carefully compiled programme brings together the top names in modern jazz and the pathfinders of the future for a four-day event that is renowned for its warm atmosphere and broadminded appreciation of contemporary jazz. Visitors should be prepared to experience high profile Finnish and international artists and forceful club gigs until the small hours.
This uniquely international event in the far north will delight the Tornio public once again at the end of June as the cultures of Finland and Sweden come together for a programme of jazz and blues in a renovated festival park, and in more traditional church settings.
