Music Festivals

From the Jazz Bash by the Bay to the California Roots Music and Arts Festival, Monterey County's line-up of music festivals makes for a invigorating getaway. In September, the annual Monterey Jazz Festival hits a chord as the world's longest continuously running jazz festival delivering and showcase for such artists as India.Arie, Sonny Rollins and Poncho Sanchez. Auto and arts enthusiasts can combine both passions at the annual Monterey Rock n' Rod Festival, while more classic pursuits can be had at the annual Carmel Bach Festival. For those set on a Bob Marley fix, the Monterey Bay Reggaefest features 25 performances under the summer sun. There is something to please every music lover in Monterey County with festivals geared towards jazz, reggae, blues, swing and much more.
