Driving Tour To South Coast Jazz Festival (Port Dover)

    August 18, 2018 all-day

    Driving Tour To South Coast Jazz Festival (Port Dover)

    Sign up early for perhaps the most interesting driving tour of the 2018 season! We currently plan to leave from either Oakville or Milton, and follow a special route over and around Hamilton Mountain and then stop for a group lunch enroute to Port Dover in Norfolk County, the home of a number of wineries. Jeremy organized a great event in 2017 which had us crisscrossing the escarpment on some exciting roads, which many of us felt was the best event we had been engaged in that year; this driving tour will encompass a number of those elements.

    Port Dover is the home of the South Coast Jazz Festival, now in its fifth year and attracting top-tier jazz and blues performers over the festival weekend (starts Friday and concludes Sunday afternoon), with the main event taking place Saturday evening, the day of this driving tour. This driving tour includes a ticket for each person to the festival, which includes a reception hosted by Dini Petty, dinner and the evening performances. A special “Porsche paddock” is planned next to the main event venue, so parking at this busy festival is taken care of!

    For those who wish to stay overnight, a block of hotel rooms has been reserved but be warned — the number of hotel rooms in Norfolk County is rather limited so, if you want to reserve a room, please register early and then contact John Buckingham regarding the available hotel options. In any case, the block of rooms will be released by June 1, in fairness to the demand from other festival participants. And, for those staying over, a group breakfast is being considered AND your festival ticket will give you access to any of the other performances that day.

    Cost for the event is $130 per person and includes lunch and the festival events (reception, dinner, performances). For more information on the South Coast Jazz Festival, please visit http://www.southcoastjazz.com/
