Our Review:

One of my favorite salsa events of the year. Live salsa music from some of the best musicians from the Bay Area and beyond, lots of tasty food and drink, and outdoor salsa dancing with hundreds of dancers-- what's not to love?

Even if you're not a hardcore salsero, there's also plenty of other music too, from Jazz to Rock to Blues and plenty of cool things to check out.

The Jazz Festival does get hot if you go during the day, so bring a towel or a change of clothes if you plan on dancing in the midday sun. A foldup chair is advisable as well if you want to sit down and relax between sets.

The San Jose Jazz Festival is one of the funnest salsa events of the year, and is not to be missed!
