In 2011 Jazz on the River and the Russian River Blues Festival will be combined. Jazz will be performed on Saturday and Blues will be performed on Sunday.

Jazz on the River is a great way to spend the weekend. This Festival is also often called the Russian River Jazz Festival because earlier in the year the Russian River Blues festival takes place in the same area at Johnson’s Beach in Guerneville. The setting couldn’t be better. Huge redwood trees surround you with the hot sun shining through. Everyone hangs out on lawn chairs and just kicks back while the music plays. If you get too hot, just jump in the warm and inviting Russian River for a dip. Check out the Annual Events banner at the top of this page and also check out the Russian River Blues Festival page to get an idea of the surroundings.
