FINALE - ALL ACTS
All of the headlining artists for 2014 will appear on Saturday February 22nd. The festival will kick off on Thursday February 20th, during our city's Gallery Walk, followed by a VIP reception on Friday to meet the artists and the main event on Saturday. The Sunday Jazz brunch brought to you by Presley Beane Financial Services will take place at the Isles Yacht Club on Sunday February 23rd.
As the festival continues to grow exponentially, we want to ensure all ticket holders enjoy the music and the atmosphere to its best. To this end, for 2014, all ticket purchases will INCLUDE a certain amount of full wine/beer servings in the price, thus ensuring ample supply for ALL and leaving the selection of product to you, the guest. The number of beverage tickets will be determined by the ticket price purchased. (VIP = 7, Premium = 4 and Regular = 3) Should you desire additional "tickets" for beverages, they can be purchased at the park on the day of the event. All food will continue to be served by local restauranteurs at a $5 per plate charge as last year, again allowing you to make you selections from personal preference. A menu of their items will be presented to you along with your wine bag, containing glasses etc, upon arrival at the park gate. The VIP section has been expanded to give more room at both sides of the stage, with the premium section being positioned to either side of the sound tent. These tickets will be the "hottest" items and we strongly suggest early ticket purchase. We are, in advance, advising that the park will open at 12.30pm, with the first headliner going on stage shortly after 1pm.
Each year we strive to add additional value and to make the event an even more enjoyable one for all. We actively listen to our attendees and respond where we can to suggested improvements. To this end, extra bathrooms will be available in both the VIP and regular sections this year, to diminish the long lines that arose during the last event. We may not have complete control over the usually perfect SWFlorida weather, but rest assured that provisions are in place to ensure all acts will go ahead, even if the show runs a little past the 6pm projected finish time. We welcome you all back to Punta Gorda's premier event of the year and hopw that you will truly enjoy the 9th Annual Wine & Jazz Festival - bringing you a top quality line-up, in an excellent venue, at a price that seriously cannot be beaten.
All tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangable.
It simply keeps getting BETTER...
