It’s back! The popular North Bend Jazz Walk returns for a 4th year this Saturday, March 14, 2015; taking over the streets of downtown North Bend and turning the whole area into one big walking jazz concert – from 6PM – Midnight.

One ticket gets you into all venues… simply stroll the streets, stop at participating businesses and enjoy some jazz. Except for The Pour House (21 and over), all venues are family-friendly.
Buy your tickets online for a discount. Adult tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Youth tickets (under 15) are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
