This year’s Festival line-up will feature six performing artists from some of the most exciting jazz combos in Northwest Oregon.
Jazz@Charbonneau will get started on Friday evening at the opening night Gala, followed by two performances each day on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. This year, we are proud to offer a live concert Saturday evening in our outdoor Pavilion. Food and beverages will be available so art-goers can sit back, relax and refresh ahead of the evening performance.
