What to Expect
This festival takes place over four consecutive Fridays. It’s expected to be a great success, estimating 4,000 visiting jazz fans! (This is definitely symbolic of how amazing the Balcones Heights Jazz Festival is, because city’s population is only 3,000 people.) Hardcore fans have been known to stake their claim. With lawn chairs and blankets, days in advance, these people save their favorite spots along the edge of the sparkling reflecting pool and fountains. David Munoz has hosted the Jazz Festival for the past 23 years, and will be returning again to emcee this year.
The Balcones Heights Jazz Festival will be located at the Wonderland of the Americas Amphitheatre, located at 4522 Fredericksburg Rd. It will take place every Friday: July 7th, 14th, 21st, and 28th, 2017. The music will be played rain or shine and will begin at 7:30 PM. The headliner will start at 9 PM. The event is free for general admission, and outdoor seating is also free on a first come, first-served basis.
