Frequently Asked Questions
Q: When can I book tickets for the Napa Valley Jazz Getaway?
A: 2017 Welcome Dinner & Jam Session Tickets, 2-Day Silver Packages, 2-Day Weekend Concert Passes, plus Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday Single Tickets are ON-SALE now. The 5-Day Diamond VIP, 5-Day Platinum, and 4-Day Gold Packages are sold out for 2017. The 2018 4-Day and 5-Day Packages will go on sale this June.
Q: I bought the 4-Day Gold Package and the top of the ticket says it's for Thursday.
A: Don't worry, your ticket is good for ALL 4 Main Concert Events: Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. If you notice, the fine print also states this on the ticket.
Q: What do I wear to all the events?
A: Note to the Ladies... Wine Country Chic: wedges and flats are recommended since we're in the grass at the Oxbow Commons. Also the evenings can get pretty cool, so remember to pack your shawls and scarves...layer up!
We recommend that everyone wear upscale casual and comfortable clothing during the day. Men: nice shorts, khakis, or jeans, a button down or polo shirt and a sweater, sport coat or jacket depending on the temperature. Women: nice skirt, sundress or slacks with a casual top plus a sweater and jacket again depending on the temperature.
For "Jazz Legend Night" at the Lincoln Theater on Thursday night, we recommend dressy chic. Hey, it's the first official night of the Getaway so let's dress to impress!
For "Friday Night Funk Night" at the Lincoln Theater, FUNKY CHIC...it's Friday Night Funk Night so anything goes! Will BC wear another purple fuzzy hat this year? Guess you'll have to wait and see...
For the Outdoor Concerts at the Oxbow Commons, we recommend upscale casual and comfortable clothes that will be cool during the afternoon (it can get hot), but with a sweater, jacket and scarf for the evening since it cools off dramatically at night. The field is grass at the Oxbow Commons so wedges and flats are recommended for the ladies.
Q: Is there an age limit of 21 years old to attend since this is a wine event?
A: No. There is no age restriction. However, we do not recommend children under the age of 10 as we do not want younger children disturbing our concert goers. Please leave all small children with the grandparents and enjoy a few days in the romantic wine country by yourselves.
