The Blue Jay Jazz Festival August 25-27 is an immersive 3-day live jazz experience. The concert series includes two evenings; Thursday and Friday, August 25 & 26 lakeside at Arrowhead Lake Association (ALA) Tavern Bay Beach Club where guests are welcome to bring a picnic basket to the concert and take delight in cool breezes and sun sets on the lake.

Thursday, the Blue Jay Jazz Foundation presents an afternoon of great jazz, plus the presentation of Music Excellence scholarships.

Friday the Foundation welcomes a new supporter, Friends of Lake Arrowhead Mountain Communities (FLAMC) whose purpose is to protect and enhance the quality of life for Lake Arrowhead Mountain Communities residents and visitors. Saturday, August 27, the party moves to the Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa.

Parking: There are several ALA lots around the venue. There is no parking in the Tavern Bay Beach Club parking lot because that is where the concerts are being held. Parking Attendants will meet your car as you pull up to Tavern Bay and direct you to park or to where you can drop off individuals or picnic supplies. Assisted parking available upon request.

Check-in: If you purchased tickets through Ticket Leap print out your tickets so they can be quickly scanned. You will receive a wristband at check-in. Main check-in at the walk-in gate near the ALA’s East Parking Lot.

What to Bring: A jacket or wrap, hat, flashlight, and water. For more information visit the festival website at or call (909) 366-6955.
