Jazz and Oysters: a culinary treat, concert and more.
The Jazz and Oysters special event is part of a larger Water Music Festival held each year in the Long Beach area in Washington State. Located 2.5 hours from Portland and 3.5 hours from Seattle this event appeals to group leaders planning regional Pacific Northwest excursions.
Names known on a national level in the jazz scene perform at this event each year. It might be the scenery or the fresh seafood, or maybe it’s the hometown hospitality that draws an impressive lineup of musicians and vocalists.
There are plenty of jazz festivals held in the US but what makes this one unique is that it is held at working Port! Attendees have the chance to watch the oyster boats while listening to world-class jazz and dining on freshly grilled oysters! Other delicious food options are available along with optional beer and wine for purchase.
Normally, attendees are required to bring their own lawn chair or blanket to sit on during the concert. However, Long Beach Package Travel has arranged for VIP treatment for tour operators. Motorcoach groups can book in advance to receive VIP seating. Bus groups that book ahead can qualify for reserved seating in chairs set-up prior to arrival. A complimentary blanket would be provided to bus groups as a special gift for the group from the event committee and could be used as a lap blanket during the event. This special offer applies to bus groups only and does require advance reservations.
The Jazz and Oysters concert is held each August. For accommodations near the concert venue, click here.
