Since 1995, Vail has brought culture and music to Colorado via the smooth rhythms of jazz. This year will be no different. Beginning Thursday, August the 28th, Vail will once again be flaunting its high-class culture to the smooth rhythms of jazz with the 20th anniversary of this illustrious shin-dig. This year, the Dallas Symphony will be teaming up with John Pizzarelli along with more avant-garde artists than this festival has ever featured before.
Geared toward the younger generations, the Vail Jazz Festival seeks to enlighten the youth and keep the smooth sounds of jazz alive and well with internationally-acclaimed musicians. Along with world-class jazz, this Labor Day will be particularly eventful for Vail. Getting hungry with all that music around? Fret not, for this weekend –along with the jazz festival to sooth the ears—the ninth edition of Vail’s Gourmet on Gore will be held in an open air setting featuring some of Vail’s top restaurants.
World class wine, beer, and spirits will be teaming up with a rich variety of Vail’s restaurants and will feature everything from fine Italian cuisine to down-home favorites like pastries from Mountain Cupcakes. Whether you’re a culinary enthusiast or just wanting to try some new foods, the open-air atmosphere is more than welcoming for foodies and hungry tourists alike. This Labor Day, whether your pleasure is music or gastronomy, Vail is poised to kick off this Labor Day with quite the bang.
