The grand finale of both the Vail Jazz Festival and the beautiful Colorado summer season, the Vail Jazz Party features a jam-packed lineup with over 35 headliners that join together to play in group performances, multi-artist jam sessions, and inspiring multimedia tributes to jazz legends. Vail Jazz Party features a House Band with John Clayton, Dick Oatts, Terell Stafford, Wycliffe Gordon, Bill Cunliffe, and Lewis Nash. With over 35 hours of jazz music, the Vail Jazz Party has cemented its reputation as the premier Labor Day weekend event!
All Vail Jazz Party events take place in Lionshead Village within the Town of Vail with the exception of the Gospel Prayer Meetin’. The Vail Marriott is the headquarters hotel, and hosts all evening sessions of music. The jazz tent at Vail Square is the location for the opening night performance and daytime sessions.
