Blue Ridge Mountains Wine & Jazz Festival
We are bringing many new changes to this years event! We are moving the festival to a park in downtown Blue Ridge this year and encourage everyone to bring lawn chairs or blanket for a fantastic afternoon and evening! With a group of swing dancers attending this year’s festival, a variety of Jazz styles, a diverse list of wines from local wineries, delicious food, and many arts and crafts on display, it promises to be a very special event.
The Blue Ridge Mountains Wine and Jazz Festival is a regional attraction and through its public, corporate, private and charitable partnerships presents an annual concert of jazz music aimed at keeping this uniquely American music form vibrant.
Through the joint efforts of our partners the festival will not only be a celebration of the musical, enological (science of wine and wine making), visual and culinary arts , but also will help raise money for student programs in jazz music and education.
We hope to bring public awareness of the Blue Ridge area as a performing arts centered community and provide entertainment for the growing permanent and seasonal population, while featuring hot jazz, great wines, fine art, delicious cuisine, and many outdoor activities all in one great place.
Gates open at 1 pm, Music from 2 to 10 pm
