Southside Shuffle Achievement Award

By March 3, 2021Events, Ward 1

The Tim Hortons Southside Shuffle Blues & Jazz Festival has won a Festivals and Events Ontario (FEO) Achievement Award at the 2021 FEO Summit  for its 4 day 2020 virtual experience this past September. The FEO achievement awards recognize excellence in festivals and events throughout the province.

The virtual event was streamed through Facebook, YouTube and Eventbrite and took over 23,000 fans from as far away as Tel Aviv, Tasmania, Australia, France and Spain on a 4 day musical adventure.

Being honoured is a wonderful recognition for the hard work and dedication of our volunteer board, Artist Director Chuck Jackson and partners at MetalWorks Productions and Outsprout Marketing.

It could not have happened without the support of our sponsors Tim Hortons of Mississauga, Port Credit West Village Partners, Conspiracy to Promote Artists and granting bodies Port Credit Community Foundation, Heritage Canada, Ontario Creates, Celebrate Ontario, SOCAN and the City of Mississauga.

You can watch all 4 days for free at

We now look forward to our 23rd annual event featuring many amazing Canadian artists including Jimmy Bowskill, Jenie Thai and of course the legendary Downchild Blues Band! Shuffle On! Shuffle Safe!
