Once More, With Feeling!

Thanks to a team of exceedingly generous donors and extremely dedicated volunteers, the Vail Jazz Workshop and Labor Day Party will return to Vail for a 30th Anniversary celebration!


Join us as we celebrate the founders, instructors, All-Stars, and musicians who have brought such joy to audiences for 30 years. It’s an effervescent tribute and thank you to everyone who has helped create and build three decades of jazz performances and education in our beautiful mountain valley.


Details will be coming your way soon. Meanwhile, mark your calendars:


Vail Jazz Party: Friday, August 30 – Sunday, September 1 (Labor Day Weekend!)
