Jazz music has shaped our culture, our history and our music.

The Saskatchewan Jazz Festival does the same. Each year it brings musicians from around the world to Saskatoon. 

It's an important week in many of our lives and I want to know why it's important to you. 

What do you love about the festival? What are your favourite jazz fest moments over the years? And this year — what were the best shows you've seen? 

I have some prizes to give away. You could win if you share a story. So join the conversation.
