October in Sun Valley, Idaho is many things to many people. We know it’s cooler days and colder nights in anticipation of winter’s first snowfall. We know Idaho’s Aspens are inching their way from a mellow green to a fiery orange and vivid gold. We enjoy a mixture of late season hikes balanced with cords of wood next to the front door. October is all about apple cider, wool throws, and sitting by the fire with a classic Hemingway novel. You get the picture. Sounds perfect doesn’t it? Well, if you are a fan of jazz, there is more to Idaho’s October than meets the eye – or ear….
Every year in October, it’s all that Jazz in our neck of the woods with 5 days, 40 band, close to 200 musicians, and over one million smiles at the Sun Valley Jazz Festival. Take note! You’ll be snapping your fingers, tapping your foot, and bobbing your head to the music of Louis Armstrong, Glenn Miller, Duke Ellington, as well as some of today’s more hipster driven, cool cats. Attendees of the Sun Valley Jazz Festival don’t skip a beat! They quickly get hooked on this fantastic musical event. We guess that you will too!
