The festival takes place at the Bud Weiner Park on the corner of Via Arbolada and Via Marisol. Between the hours of 10:30 am and 6:30 pm, you will be entertained by Jazz, Blues and Latin Jazz bands including the music of the BluesMen, City Beat, Ron McCurdy Collective and headlining is the Susie Hansen Latin Band.
From what I hear Gourmet Food Trucks will be there to ensure all have a happy tummy. However, I can not find a list of trucks scheduled to attend. If anyone has that info, please post in the comments below.
And there will be food and other refreshments available as we have invited back Holly’s Bar-B-Que – his food is always a favorite of the crowd. Also returning will be Khani Melton who is a wonderful Masseuse.
Monterey Hills Jazz Festival is FREE and is a great opportunity to meet your neighbors and to have a great time! ENJOY!
