Missing Music Festivals

One of the best parts of summer in the midwest are the music festivals. WeFest, 10,000 Lakes Festival, Ribfest, County Fairs, and Moondance Jam are some of the premier events around the Fargo-Moorhead area that bring in thousands of visitors from around the world each summer.

During the winter, festivals are limited in the midwest due to the harsh weather conditions. However, music lovers don't have to be left out in the cold.

The St. Barts Music Festival is an annual event, taking place this year from January 11-23. Audiences are treated to intimate concerts by some of the world’s most prominent classical, opera, ballet, and jazz stars, while being able to enjoy paradise.

The Barbados Jazz Festival takes place January 14-20 and features 15 amazing artists from around the world. This festival is one of the premier jazz festivals each year.

The Air Jamaica Jazz and Blues Festival has been jamming for fans since 1996. 40,000 visitors attended the event in 2006 and the numbers continue to grow! The dates for this years festival are January 24-26.

The St. John Blues Festival is taking place from March 19-23 this year and offers amazing music accompanied by gorgeous scenery.

Many music lovers say the only way to truely experience music is to become submerged in it. Submerge yourself this winter in the carribbean.
