The Vail Jazz Festival is a 12-week program that brings the best talent in the jazz world to the ultimate summer destination in the Colorado Rockies: Vail. The Festival consists of five distinctive series that run from June – September: Vail Jazz @ Vail Square, Vail Jazz @ The Market, Vail Jazz Club Series, Vail Jazz @ The Remedy and the Vail Jazz Party. All events take place in the Town of Vail, which allows guests to stay, dine, and play just a short walk from world-class jazz performances. With over 60 performances and 200 artists, join us this summer as we fill the streets of Vail with the sounds of swing, salsa, blues, Latin, bebop, the American Songbook, and more!
