Give the Gift of Jazz: Special Holiday Discount Tickets Offered for 2012 Newport Jazz Festival®
$50.00 Tickets Available at the Newport CVB December 1 - January 1
If you're looking for the perfect holiday surprise or a special treat for yourself, give the gift of jazz and present family and friends with tickets to the 2012 Newport Jazz Festival®. George Wein, Chairman of the Newport Festivals Foundation™ and Producer of the Jazz Festival, is once again offering special holiday discount tickets priced at just $50.00 for the holiday season.
The $50.00 tickets (regularly $69.00) can be used for General Admission on either Saturday or Sunday of the festival, so there is no need to decide now which day to attend. These tickets are available December 1 - January 1 and must be purchased in person at the Newport and Bristol County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB), 23 America's Cup Avenue in Newport. Children's tickets also are available for $15 for ages 3 - 15 (under 3, free).
The 2012 Newport Jazz Festival® is set for August 3 - 5.
"We're pleased to give area residents the opportunity to share the joy of jazz with family and friends at this special price during the holiday season," said Wein. "We first made the $50.00 tickets available in 2010, and since then several thousand people have taken advantage of the discount."
This offer is not available on-line or by telephone. The discount is good for General Admission tickets only for concerts at Fort Adams State Park on Saturday and Sunday.

Artists will be announced and all tickets will go on sale at a later date.
