2-for-1 Tix for Jazz Fest

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Thu, Feb 12, 2009 at 3:01 PM


Lionel Loueke, performing Sun Feb 15

The Portland Jazz Festival begins tomorrow. This is the reconstructed, resurrected zombie of jazz festivals; it's been declared dead at least once, but an influx of cash from the likes of Alaska Airlines and civic support from elected officials have helped it back on its feet. There are shows all over town from February 13 through February 23. Check out the full schedule.

There's a good amount of free stuff happening, but you should know that there's a really good deal for some of these big shows: Buy one, get one free. That's a solid bargain. Here's a list of the shows for which you can get two tickets for the price of one. The two-for-one tickets can be purchased online here, or by calling the PDX Jazz box office at 828-JAZZ.
