JAZZ TENT AT VAIL SQUARE
675 LIONSHEAD PLACE
Tucked into its picturesque setting adjacent to the Arrabelle Hotel, the Jazz Tent is home to the Vail Jazz @ Vail Square Headliner Series. Seating in the tent provides great sightlines and carefully tuned acoustics to complement a stunning roster of superlative artists in the festive Arrabelle courtyard, replete with restaurants, taverns, shops, and a highly convivial vibe.
141 E. MEADOW DRIVE
In the heart of Vail Village, Solaris Plaza is the perfect area to dance on the grass, bring a blanket, sit on the steps, or snag a table at a local restaurant to experience live jazz for Vail Jazz @ Solaris. This is an open-air venue so come prepared for the Colorado weather! Have questions about this venue? Click here to learn more.
1600 S. FRONTAGE ROAD W.
This stunning timber and stone mountain facility backs to the Gore Creek and provides the perfect backdrop for a truly memorable experience. The Donovan Pavilion will be home to the Kickoff Party featuring Wycliffe Gordon on Tuesday, July 11. Onsite parking is free.
675 LIONSHEAD PLACE
Tucked inside the Arrabelle hotel, the Tavern is home to Howard’s Hangout on Thursday evenings immediately after the headliner concert. It’s a cozy, intimate place to get a drink or meal, and get up close to the musicians. Located a “stone’s throw” from the Jazz Tent, it’s easy to pop in for a night cap and keep the music going.
