Portugal & Spain
With KJAZZ host Bubba Jackson

A Floating Jazz, Food & Wine Festival

Calling all jazz fans – as well as lovers of food, wine, art and history – for the 2019 Floating Jazz Fest to Portugal and Spain! Join KJAZZ hosts Bubba Jackson & Jose Rizo and fellow public radio music lovers for a joyful and toe tapping adventure.

This exclusive experience begins in Lisbon, where you’ll be immersed in Portugal’s rich cultural heritage. The fun continues as you travel north to Porto. Savor traditional Portuguese cuisine in a seaside café and lose yourself in the cobblestone streets of the medieval center before boarding the first-class, five anchor MS Gil Eanes for a fabulous seven night jazz cruise highlighting Portugal’s extraordinary cultural heritage: wine, cuisine, history and architecture. Cruising east up the Douro river among quaint villages and rolling hills lined with lush vineyards, we may even catch the vintners at their grape harvest.

Created especially for jazz fans, the Floating Festival itinerary will not only feature top jazz concerts and talks about the history of jazz, guests will also be treated to daily cultural enrichment excursions to picturesque towns, vineyards and villages. A delightful blend of jazz, history, food and wine – all this trip just needs is some public radio enthusiasts to complete the recipe for a perfect trip. Space is limited – reserve now: 800-723-8454.

See you in Portugal!
