RB Jazz Fest 2013 information / tips / suggestions

looking ahead and planning for the Jazz Fest in October...My husband and I were at the start of the Berks Jazz Fest last weekend and had a awesome time...The hotel we stayed at appeared to be the "signature hotel" for some of the shows, jam sessions, etc..and it really made our stay great..a lot of mingling with the guests and some of the performers

I was wondering are there any specific hotels on the boardwalk or nearby that have special "jazz fest" events, or is this all done at the area bars and restaurants??

We are trying to plan our stay, and would like to stay central to as much of the festivities as we can...

Any help would be appreciated

Hi,

We were at Old Bay restaurant as well for the same show. Both artists were great. After exploring the area during the day and asking around we have decided on staying at Avenue Inn near the boardwalk. We were able to see the hotel and liked what we saw. Its close to the convention center where most of the shows we are attending will be and its far from highway one near Old Bay restaurant where the after show parties will be. and we liked that it has an indoor pool.

Did u purchase any tickets while u were there. ??

Thank you for the heads up. We just looked the Avenue Inn, it looks like that might be the ticket. As far as tickets we are planning to go Friday after party and Saturday jam session. We are still tossing around the idea of staying for the Sunday closing party. FYI, Dauphin County has a Wine and Jazz fest in September that you might want to check out. dauphincounty.org/government/Parks-and-Recre…

Thanks for the info on the September fest. We will check that out. In my last reply I meant to say the Avenue Inn is NOT far from highway 1 where Old Bay restaurant is. Maybe we will see u at the hotel and jazz fest in October. We have a packed weekend of shows. My husband went nuts buying tickets. Lol.

Delaware Tourism Office What's this?

Avenue Inn is one of the best hotels in Rehoboth! You will not be disappointed! The majority of the jazz performances will be held at the designated venues, however, most bars/restaurants will feature jazz themed entertainment during jazz fest! If you're looking for venues that may be playing jazz in addition to the convention center, etc., pick up Beachcomber, Cape Gazette or Coast Press when you get into town. The Beachcomber and Coast Press are both free publications and can usually be found in supermarkets, convenience stores, shops and along the sidewalk. They always feature a listing of all of the entertainment that is scheduled to occur each weekend in RB.

Have a great trip!!!!!
