Add a Little Jazz to your Weekend

Effective Feb 2019, Ventana al Jazz is on “Hold” and is currently not happening….they hope to move it back to Condado…I will update when I hear more..

Heineken Ventana al JazzFest

If you like Jazz,______ is the place to be on the last Sunday of every month. That’s when Heineken sponsors Ventana al Jazz — a free, open-air jazz concert that is a great way wrap-up your weekend.

Bring a chair or a blanket, and make an evening of it — sitting under the stars, enjoying live jazz music, with a few hundred of your closest friends.

Where? When?

Heineken Ventana al JazzFest

These concerts are held the last Sunday of the month at the _______>/em> right at the . The music starts at 5:30pm (on island time) and runs until 9pm or so.

The bands vary by month — some are just music, some have vocals. Most of the songs and talking by the bands will be in Spanish, but the music transcends language barriers. It is what I would call Puerto Rican jazz … mixing of Puerto Rican instruments with the jazz rhythm.

And did I mention it’s free?

Casual & Family-friendly

The Paseo Caribe is on pavers outside, on the waterfront. This is a casual family event, so dress comfortably. Bring chairs if you have them, as there are only a few places to sit (benches, steps, etc).

Heineken Ventana al JazzFest

There were a number of vendors selling food and various drinks (alcoholic and otherwise). There are bathrooms available, but you may want to bring your own TP, just in case.

Traffic was heavy driving into the area even before 4pm. By the time we got there, there were already people claiming their spot. There are a few parking decks and lots in the area- Paseo Caribe, Caribe Hilton and Escambrón.

The annual Heineken Jazz Fest is usually at the end of March.

The annual Heineken Jazz Fest, will be held at again in 2018???. Visit the Heineken Jazz Fest web site for more information, or check our Calendar of Events for dates.
