5th Annual 2018 SLO Jazz Festival
The 5th Annual 2018 SLO Jazz Festival occurs May 18-19, 2018, in Mission Plaza San Luis Obispo. Always the weekend following Mother’s Day, the jazz festival is expanding from 1 day and 4 stages to 2 days and 5 stages in 2018. San Luis Obispo is known for wonderful wine, Cal Poly and Cuesta, clean air, close to the beaches, and the happiest city in America. We’re hosting a big celebration of life through jazz music this year. Our stages include an homage to New Orleans music Broad Street “NOLA” stage, a local & regional “Jazz Lives” stage (new), an International jazz talent stage, a college band stage in SLO Museum of Art, a jazz clinic in the SLO Museum of Art between the college bands, wine tasting near the main stage with a dozen local wineries in 2018, and a high school band stage in the SLO Children’s Museum that will feature multiple high school bands.
