Annual Wangaratta Jazz and Blues Festival
The Wangaratta Jazz and Blues Festival is one of Australia’s largest regional music events and as attained Hallmark Event Status. The 3 day 2012 festival will include a line up of the best range of jazz and blues talent and will no doubt once again increase the positive reputation of the event.
Don’t forget the Black Tie opening dinner, jazz workshops and popular Sunday Market.
Accommodation is usually booked out from year to year so you do need to get in early. Apex Park Holiday Apartments are a stone throw away from the Blues Tent and centre of the all of the Festival Action.

2012 Wangaratta Jazz and Blues Festival- 2nd - 5th November
Artistic director Adrian Jackson is busy finalising another international class line up featuring the very best range of jazz talents from around Australia and many places abroad. It will again be a very exciting and innovative program which will delight jazz lovers and further enhance the festival's reputation as the country's "number one" event.
On top of that, of course, is the Blues program, which continues to draw big crowds throughout the whole weekend.
Add in the traditiional Black Tie opening dinner, the National Jazz Awards, the jazz workshops and of course the hugely popular Reid Street free stage program and Sunday Market, and 2012, the 23rd year, looks set to be an absolute cracker.
The Wangaratta Festival of Jazz was conceived in 1989 by a group of local business people who wanted to establish a significant event for their town and region. An event that would be unique and that would attract many tourists to the area. Launched in 1990, the annual Wangaratta Festival of Jazz is one of Australia's biggest regional music events, and has been acclaimed by fans, musicians and critics as Australia's premier jazz festival. It enjoys Tourism Victoria's Hallmark Event status, having won the Victorian Tourism Award for regional events three times, and the Australian Tourism Award in 1999 for Regional Festivals of Events
