These beautiful friendly concerts, on the lake shore attract a multitude of people from all over. We fell madly in love with this festival because the centre of Ascona is transformed in one big open air stage, all dedicated to Jazz Music, creating a unique and spirited atmosphere.
The Ascona Jazz Festival is usually on during the third week of June. Entrance to the Festival is free during the week but it is payable at the weekend.
Due to lack of parking in the centre, it is possible to park at the Ascona aerodrome which is well serviced by public shuttle busses.
