No where else can you find back-to-back Blues and Jazz Festivals with such incredible talent as you’ll find in Hot Springs kicking-off Labor Day weekend. Any blues and jazz fan will love either or both Festivals!
The Blues 17th Annual Festival is Labor Day weekend with a pre-event line-up starting Aug. 28. Gates to the Festival open at 2:30, Aug. 31 and 1:30 Sept. 1 and continue all day. After-parties start at 9 p.m. each night at different locations. So, Blues aficionados get two full days and most of the night with fantastic and diverse blues performances. Check the website for details and ticket information.
Then in less than two weeks later the six-day Jazz Festival takes place Sept. 10-15. Top jazz pianists kick off the Jazz Festival including swing, blues, stride, boogie-woogie, bebop and contemporary. The festival continues each day with different themes in different locations and concludes with Stardust Big Band the afternoon of Sept. 15. For more information see their website.
The perfect addition to the Blues and/or Jazz Festivals would be to stay at our luxurious Hot Springs Bed and Breakfast during the Festivals. This combination would be a great pairing: impressive music and a breathtaking place to rest and rejuvenate. We offer indulgence in each room, a beautiful view of Lake Hamilton and the most delicious breakfast you can find. What a wonderful Arkansas getaway! Reserve your room online here.
