School has started, summer is winding down into its final hours and fall is on its way but there’s one last party to be had to celebrate the end of summer and beginning of fall: Jazz Weekend in St. Charles!
If you’re looking to travel to St. Charles and come stay for the weekend, check in to and check out one of our 10 amazing hotels. Stay at the Hotel Baker in downtown St. Charles, where you can walk to many of the Jazz Weekend performances happening around town or stay at the Hampton Inn and Suites or Fairfield Inn for an easy and quick drive to St. Charles! No matter where you choose, you’ll have an amazing stay in high-quality accommodations.
Of course, the event welcomes locals and visitors alike. Come on down for performances hosted on Thursday, Sept. 9 until Sunday, Sept. 12. Performances will be all over town that weekend with 13 St. Charles venues hosting 28 jazz musicians. You’ll find Grammy-award winning saxophonist Frank Catalano kicking-off the weekend with an electrifying performance at the Filling Station Pub & Grill and returning Saturday for a performance out near First Street Plaza, or come support our St. Charles North High School’s Jazz Workshop group perform on First Street Plaza on Friday if you want to cheer on the next generation of Jazz musicians.
In addition to the Jazz musicians, there will be businesses hosting specials throughout the weekend. Come tune into your Jazzy side and support local too! You can find information on that here. One of the big events will be the St. Charles Park District’s Sip and Stroll, where people can walk around Mt. St. Mary’s and enjoy some some local ciders, check out unique artwork in the sculpture exhibit and more! For information and tickets, visit here.
