Pentastic Hot Jazz & Music Festival is a new name for our event.  It better reflects the festival’s jazz roots and the fact that we’re excited to introduce some more genres. 

The Pentastic Hot Jazz & Music Festival is held in Penticton the weekend after the September long weekend.  This year marks the 24th annual festival. We are proud of our longevity and look forward to seeing old friends every year and making new friends too.
