Pismo Jazz

BSR Home > Jubilee by the Sea

Every October our Club hosts "Jubilee by the Sea," a world class traditional jazz festival held in beautiful Pismo Beach. This festival has been successful each year since it began in 1976, with fans streaming in from all over the country. It is held for four days at multiple venues including the Pismo Beach Veteran's Memorial Building, Marie Calendars banquet room, and in tents located at the St Anthony's Fair Ground and "on the beach" at the Addie Street parking lot. Buses run continuously to get you to all of the venues for another great show! Locally catered food and drinks are available at all locations. We have hardwood floors at all venues for your dancing pleasure! There are three-day tickets, one-day tickets and student tickets available.

During the course of the event, we provide about 120 one-hour performances utilizing 20 bands plus guest artists. The festival takes place during the last FULL weekend in October. It is organized and operated solely by Volunteers. Click here to download a Jubilee Volunteer Form. This is a separate effort from our regular Sunday Sessions. Revenue from the festival helps fund the monthly BSR Sunday Sessions as well as our extensive Youth Programs. We need financial support to help us fund the Jubilee every year. Our supporters are called "Jubilee Boosters" and are entitled to special privileges, depending on their level of support. All donations are 100% tax deductible. For more information, please call the Jubilee Coordinator at (805) 481-7840.
