What Is The Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival?

The Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival is now recognized as the #1 Cultural Tourism event in Vancouver and Southwest Washington and is “…the largest jazz festival of its kind in the Northwest…” (KATU Channel 2, Portland, OR). It is also considered “…one of the most important jazz festivals on the west coast…” (NW Jazz Profile Magazine). Since 1998, attendees from 17 states and Canada have attended the event to experience the mission of the Festival: “…Hot jazz, great wines, fine art and delicious cuisine, all in one place, in one great city—Vancouver, Washington!”

Our local Downtown Vancouver, WA stage will be highlighted by acts such as Mavis Staples, John Hammond, Spyro Jyra, David Sanborn, The Rippingtons and more. There will be over 40 wineries with hundreds of labels. 40 Fine artists and a bunch of wonderful restaurants on site. You won’t want to miss any of this huge event. You can purchase tickets for the Vancouver Wine & Jazz Festival here. It is important to note that this is open to ALL ages! Kids under 12 are free but must be accompanied by an adult. They want everyone to be able to enjoy the jazz of the festival so bring down the whole family.
