Can I still apply to be a performer or food vendor at the 2014 festival?

Yes! Applications must be submitted by February 1.

Where can I find a place to eat?
See the dining guide on downtownelkhart.org and don’t miss the interactive downtown dining directory that shows precise locations of the many downtown dining options.

What hotel can you recommend?
The Elkhart Jazz Festival cannot recommend specific hotels. However we have compiled a list of nearby hotels, campgrounds, and bed and breakfasts found on our Lodging page. You can also visit the web site of our anchor sponsor, the Elkhart Convention and Visitor’s Bureau for more information on lodging and area attractions.

How and where can I get tickets?
You can order tickets online from The Lerner at www.thelerner.com or through the Box Office at 1-800-294-8223.  Approximately two weeks before the festival, all tickets go into “Will Call” and can be picked up at The Lerner box office during the weekend.

Are the venues air-conditioned?
All indoor venues are air-conditioned, outdoor venues are traditionally open-air pavilions.

What should I wear?
Dress is casual and comfortable. Layers are recommended for evening breezes and going to and from air-conditioned venues. Downtown restaurants include both casual and fine dining establishments, but none has a strict dress code during the Jazz Festival weekend.
