jazz-fest-1-2Yeah! Part of the line-up of the 2009 Winter Park Jazz Festival has already been announced, with more artists still to be announced in the coming weeks. Since I’ve lived in Winter Park, the Jazz Fest line-up hasn’t been announced until late May or early June, so this is a record!

I’m not a really big Jazz music fan, so I can’t tell you much about these artists, but I can say that the Jazz Fest weekend is one of the most happenin’ weekends of the summer in Winter Park.  I  love going to the shows and being out in the action. Last year was a great time, the weather was perfect and I was introduced to some really good Jazz performers, like Kelly Sweet and Dave Koz (pictured here). 

Oh, I almost forgot. Winter Park Lodging by Owner has some premier condos in a prime location for the Jazz Fest. They’re called the Trailhead Lodge condos, and they’re so close to the festival grounds, you can even watch the festival from the balcony one of them. Plus, they’re finishing up an outdoor pool and hot tubs this summer – we’ve heard they’ll be ready by July!

Here is what we know so far:

Saturday, July 25th

  • Fourplay
  • Warren Hill
  • War

Sunday, July 26th

  • Boney James
  • Sax for Stax
  • Rippingtons

We’ve updated our website with the Jazz Fest line-up as well. Keep checking back to get updates on the line-up, ticket prices and more.
