If it’s the third week of October in Clearwater, that means it’s time for one of the Sunshine State’s great musical traditions: the Clearwater Jazz Holiday!
If you’re hoping to attend this year’s annual concert festival, choose Sirata Beach Resort as your home-away-from-home as you enjoy the jazzy goodness! The Holiday hits Coachman Park mid to end October, so now’s the time to make your getaway plans!
Needless to say, Clearwater’s very own international jazz festival has evolved a bit from its early days featuring musicians on the back of a flatbed truck. Now, close to 40,000 music lovers descend on Pinellas County’s Gulf Coast for the affair, which also draws some of the very biggest names in the industry to perform.
Over these 30-plus years, the Clearwater Jazz Holiday has hosted such jazz legends as Dizzy Gillespie, Dave Brubeck, Stan Getz, the Count Basie Orchestra, and Buddy Rich—plus equally beloved figures from other musical genres, from Gladys Knight to Earth, Wind & Fire.
Daily headliners certainly meet the illustrious benchmark the Clearwater Jazz Holiday’s established for itself for decades along with other jampacked lineups offering great music.
And Saturday night's set comes followed up by razzle-dazzle fireworks (at 10:45 PM) and then the on-the-water Clearwater Jazz Holiday Late Night Party, during which a band will entertain all the revelers aboard the Starlite Majesty.
From St Pete Concessions to Mr. & Mrs. Clydes Tacos & Dillas, there’ll be a slew of food vendors on hand for the Clearwater Jazz Holiday—easy on the ears and easy on the taste buds, you might say.
So come be a part of one of the highest-profile happenings on the Gulf Coast, the annual Clearwater Jazz Holiday, and choose convenient luxury lodgings at the Sirata Beach Resort for the occasion!
