In its current form since 2013, Winter Fest presents established stars and fast-rising artists in a series of events in intimate indoor settings. Spanning genres like jazz, blues, R&B, soul, Latin, New Orleans and global music, the Fest has become known as one of the best series in Northern California to discover new artists who are on the way up.
