Get Ready for the Clearwater Jazz Holiday
The Clearwater Jazz Holiday is coming soon. If plan to attend one of Clearwater’s favorite events, you might want to make sure you make your plans now. If you are not a local resident, finding accommodations now might be a good idea. The festival ordinarily pulls in about 10,000 people a day to watch and listen to great jazz artists. This year, to draw in larger acts, the event is charging a $15 entrance fee, reduced to $10 for advance tickets. The move has apparently paid off and, according the Jazz Festival Facebook page, headliners will be Chicago, Average White Band & Tower of Power, and Brandi Carlile.
Tips for the Clearwater Jazz Holiday
The Clearwater Jazz Holiday is held October 17th to the 20th. It is located at Coachman Park, just down the hill from the Clearwater Library on Osceola Avenue, and just north of the causeway bridge to Clearwater Beach. Parking your car can be a challenge but generally vacant lots are made available for parking and the street parking to the east absorbs the rest. Be ready to walk a few blocks to the festival. Pack light chairs, blankets, and put any spare gear in an easy to carry bag or pack. Outside drinks and food are not allowed. Also this year, due to the entrance fee, you will not be allowed to come and go as you please, so take everything you will need on your first trip. We recommend sunscreen and hats for the daytime and blankets and jackets for the night, just in case.
Have Fun at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday
The Clearwater Jazz Holiday is fun. Food vendors, live music and lots of people make the event a success every year. Add a beautiful sunset over Clearwater Harbor, and you have the makings of a great event. Bring your friends or family for a good time in the outdoor spaces of Coachman Park. This event is a Clearwater favorite.
