VANCOUVER, May 15, 2013 /CNW/ - TD will top off the summer music festival season with its sponsorship of the Khatsahlano! Music + Art Festival, which is considered to be Vancouver's biggest free outdoor music event. This festival is one of a number of major music festivals across the country sponsored by TD.

"We've been supporting music festivals across the province for years and this newest sponsorship fits perfectly within our program by allowing us to connect with Vancouverites through great musical acts," said Jane Russell, Senior Vice President - Pacific Region, TD Bank Group. "With our newly opened branch at Cypress and 4th, TD will be able to join in the festivities this year."

This year's festival, which takes place on July 13, will feature 12 stages showcasing more than 50 of Vancouver's top musical performers, including indie acts and street performers. During the festival, local merchants along Kitsilano's trendy West 4th Avenue will turn the neighbourhood into a 10-block street fair with food stations, patios and curated art exhibitions for nearly 80,000 people.

"The organizers of the Khatsahlano! Music + Art Festival are pleased to welcome TD as its latest sponsor," said Russ Davies, CEO of the Kitsilano 4th Avenue Business Improvement Association. "It's important to have the support of major sponsors to help support artists, promote local businesses and build strong communities."

TD's strong commitment to the local music and arts scene doesn't stop there. For the last 10 years, TD has sponsored the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival, a signature music festival to the delight of thousands of people in Greater Vancouver. TD is proud to be part of such a well-known event that showcases the talents of homegrown artists and notable musicians from across the country and the world.
