The annual Jewel Bay Jazz Festival returns!
The fun begins Sunday in Riverfront Park with a sampling of the week’s offerings, including international guitar sensation Gerry Martin. Bring a picnic, kick back, and drink in the music in a sparkling outdoor setting.
Concerts continue nightly in the Playhouse, where treasured artists from across the country will entertain you. Don’t miss the student concerts and open mic nights scattered around the village, where you’re sure to discover a diamond in the rough—or two.
While you’re visiting Jewel Bay, the Food Lovers’ Village, enjoy breakfast at the Jewel Bay Inn, linger over coffee and genuine French pastry at Le Panier, and visit the Grille for the best Reubens this side of the Rockies. Dine at the Inn, Applause, or Chez Max, or take home a picnic basket stocked with delectable taste treats from the Merc.
Shop in the village for books, children’s toys and clothing, and more. Jewel Bay’s galleries feature painters, potters, glass artists, and sculptors from around the region.
Hike, fish, kayak, sail, golf, and enjoy the wonders of Glacier National Park, only a thirty-minute drive.
You’ll take home more than treasured memories when you visit Jewel Bay, Montana’s crown jewel!
Tell me about a music festival or concert you particularly love or remember!

Erin Murphy, manager of Murphy’s Mercantile (aka the Merc), is tuning up for Jewel Bay’s annual Jazz Festival. Between keeping the Merc’s shelves stocked with Montana’s tastiest local fare and hosting the festival’s kick-off concert, Erin has her hands full.
Discord erupts when jazz guitarist Gerry Martin is found dead on the rocks above the Jewel River. The one-time international sensation had fallen out of sync with festival organizers, students, and performers. Was his death an accident?or did someone even the score?
Despite the warning signs to not get involved, Erin investigates. And when the killer attacks, she orchestrates her efforts into one last crescendo, hoping to avoid a deadly finale.
