Line Up and Details
A one-day annual music festival celebrating jazz and blues in the heart of Old South, London ON.
The festival was founded and organized by two Wortley Village business owners, Rod Lorimer and Marty Verweel. In the spring of 2016, Rod and Marty passed the torch to the Old South Community Organization.
This festival is proud to feature London’s best jazz and blues musicians, many of whom hail from Old South and Wortley Village.
WVJBF is funded through sponsorships from many Wortley Village businesses and by the London Musician Association through the Music Performance Trust Fund.
Your donations are also collected at the festival. Without YOUR help, there may not be a “next year”! Please be generous.
OSCO is a non-profit, member-run volunteer organization dedicated to protecting and improving the quality of life in the Old South community and in the city of London. This year OSCO will donate festival proceeds to ongoing community programs.
