Hermann Wine & Jazz Festival

09/07/2019

September 6-8, 2019

From Sept. 6-8, nearly 35 world-class talent jazz artists–including an educational jazz panel–converge on everything from Hermann’s Accommodations to its Amphitheater for a getaway weekend to wine country stacked with high-energy, indoor-outdoor performances. Unique as Missouri’s only weekend wine and jazz festival amongst the vineyards, regional artists combine previously untapped talent resulting in improvisational masterpieces. To witness these FREE shows are truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunities. Travel safe and easy with Amtrak–four blocks from Hermann Amphitheater. Historically, the lodging sells out first so don’t wait to book. www.hermannjazz.com.
