Visitors of the festival will hear all of the best jazz players in one place and will be the first to hear new talents as well. Jazz, blues, folk, and American song are all presented here. The whole festival is one big music experience. Each third full weekend of September the Monterey County Fairgrounds becomes a hot spot for jazz lovers. If you are one of them, you should get your tickets as soon as the sale opens, as they sell out immediately.
