Apart from the jazz performances by the world -class musicians, the Kuching Waterfront Jazz (KWJF) festival features a bazaar comprising arts and craft, including food and beverage vendors. The bazaar gives festival goers a more holistic experience, especially visitors to Sarawak, where they will be able to purchase local Sarawak wares and food. The bazaar also includes booths by non-profit organisations such as SSPCA & Lim Kok Wing, 10 Ringgit Club, Blind Massage Centre and Heart Treasures.

The number of festival-goers to KWJF 2017 was recorded at about 4000, far exceeding the target of the organisers. The jazz festival was a success as it was created as a family oriented event with significance given for an audience of all ages. Apart from The entertaining music concerts, the view of the spectacular Sarawak River together with the lively bazaar made KWJF an event to be remembered. KWJF 2018 this year promises to include a greater lineup of performers and a complete event with activities for the whole family to enjoy.
