Vail Marriott Mountain Resort, Vail Colorado

The Vail Jazz Festival culminates in a unique mix of world-class musicians in a one-of-a-kind format that has lived up to its title, the Labor Day Weekend Party. Whether it's group performances, multi-artist jam sessions or the inspiring multi-media salutes to Jazz legends, the Weekend has a unique party spirit that attracts musicians and jazz lovers from all over the world. Each year, up-and-coming "young lions" play alongside the living legends of jazz in an intimate venue, surrounded by the natural beauty of Vail. With twenty five hours of performances throughout the weekend (morning, noon and night), the audience and musicians are connected in a manner that consistently inspires great performances.
