The music scene in Portland, OR has gathered an incredible following and the strength of the Portland Jazz Festival is just one testament to the growing number of jazz fans in the Northwest. The festival takes place at a number of prominent venues throughout the city and even though tickets can be a little steep for some performances (upwards of $75 in some cases), there are also many free events and jazz education opportunities in conjunction with the festival.
Tickets for the festival are available at all TicketMaster outlets, at the Portland Center for the Performing Arts box office or through the festival website. Book early for headlining acts and, as with all festivals, be sure to have accommodations arranged as early as possible. There are a variety of package deals available through the box office and the website with several concerts bundled together at a discounted price.
