Put on your dancing shoes and get ready to groove to the hottest tunes in South Bay all summer, as San Jose Jazz Summer Fest floods downtown with over 100 Silicon Valley concerts on 13 indoor and outdoor stages. Orbiting the Kaiser Permanente Main Stage in Plaza de Cesar Chavez, the festival takes place across a tight swath of San Jose, making it easy to go from show to show, wherever your dancing feet may take you – whether global food vendors, beer and wine gardens, or playing at the Kids Zone. With roots dating back to a single stage of modern jazz masters in 1990, the three-day music party now encompasses styles as diverse as Latin, hip-hop, electronic, funk, blues, R&B, and neo-soul. All this means there's something for everyone, including festival highlights:
