Be Captivated by Jazz Stars from Across the Country at This Festival

This July marks the 25th Annual Balcones Heights Jazz Festival! For over two decades, the Balcones Heights Jazz Festival has been a summer highlight captivating jazz aficionados from across Texas with a free stellar line-up of renowned jazz stars from across the country.

This year’s performance features a diverse line-up of headlining and special opening acts, new to the Jazz Festival. These performers include: Los Angeles-based trumpeter Rick Braun; UK’s Smooth Jazz keyboardist Oli Silk; Grammy nominated guitarist Paul Jackson, Jr.; D.C. saxophonist Phillip “Doc” Martin; world jazz duo guitarists Strunz & Farah; national recording artist and saxophonist Chase Huna; and adult contemporary guitarist Steve Oliver.

For four consecutive Friday evenings, the festival’s laid back and family-friendly atmosphere will welcome an estimated 4,000 jazz fans, surpassing the city’s entire population of 3,000. Die-hard fans have been known to stake out their claim, with lawn chairs and blankets in tow, days in advance of the event at favorite spots along the edge of the sparking reflecting pool and fountains of the city’s main hub Wonderland of the Americas. We invite you to join us for this highly-anticipated festival!
