Ascona’s Mediterranean atmosphere makes it the perfect travel destination, all year round. Even more so during the 10 days of the jazz festival…

"This year JazzAscona –the only festival outside of the USA that is officially supported by the City of New Orleans - celebrates its 36th edition with a follow-up of last year’s edition, The New Orleans Experience–Original Music & Food from Louisiana. The festival’s program includes almost 160 concerts, late-night jam sessions, tributes to great artists of the past, first-rate New Orleanian artists, brass band parades, and much more. Several local restaurants will additionally serve savory Louisiana specialties.

Welcome to Ascona! Welcome to JazzAscona!"

- Guido Casparis, president of JazzAscona -
