See Which Hotels Below Offer Free Thursday Night Accomodations
ARRIVE ON THURSDAY DON'T START PAYING FOR YOUR ROOM UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT



Catalina Island is just 1 hour on board Catalina Express or 15 minutes by helicopter on Island Express so Day Tripping over and back for the day at the JazzTrax Festival can be done with Late Boat returns to Long Beach Downtown Landing after Final Performance each Saturday and Sunday Nights approximate 11:45 p.m. arriving back on the Mainland around 1 am

Daytripping to JazzTrax from Southern California is easy and fun…..But then of course you miss the buzz of the JazzTrax AfterParties….Dancing on the Beach at Midnight. Waking up in the morning already on the Island. Whereas there are MANY Daytrippers on Saturday and Sundays all 3 JazzTrax Weekends, the vast majority of the festival audience STAY ALL WEEKEND.

Most festival goers stay ON THE ISLAND 3 nights. . . although there is a late boat after final performance on Sunday (and Saturday) should your work demand you be back first thing Monday Morning. A growing number, up to HALF of all Festival Goers …….now stay 4 nights for the Thursday Night Unplugged Concerts Under the Stars at Descanso Beach. Unique because your travel is then to the Island on Thursday, not only waking up Friday Morning already on the Island, but also having an entire day to Take In The Island and the Tiny Seaport Village of Avalon. A day to Tour the Inland Stretches, scuba or snorkel as Catalina Island ranks as perhaps California's No. 1 destination for that, including right off Casino Point.

A day to Golf the historic 9 hole Catalina Country Club where the Hollywood Stars once linked up, or tennis. A leisurely long late breakfast or lunch. Or RELAX and do nothing as you await the Avalon Ballroom Festival Concerts beginning Friday Evening at 7 pm. Then it's concert after concert all weekend long.

Plus many of the JazzTrax Host Hotels below offer FREE THURSDAY NIGHT ROOMS with a paid 3 night weekend minimum.

Imagine arriving on Thursday but not having to start paying
for your room until Friday Night!

There are many unique boutique hotels all over Avalon as well as a myriad of House Rentals and Villa's to Rent at Hamilton Cove that come with a private golf cart. For In Town Rental Homes (including if booked by end of Summer Thursday Nights FREE) and Hamilton Cove Villa's contact CATALINA ISLAND VACATION RENTALS below. More and More Festival Goers are coming 2 to 3 couples together and sharing house and kitchen facilities for a very affordable JazzTrax Festival Weekend on the Isle of Romance. If you sail over in a boat with bedrooms, you can use it as your own floating hotel. Check in with the Harbor Master for a mooring in Avalon Harbor or alongside Descanso Beach or Hamilton Cove.
