General Info

Date: Sunday May 24, 2015

We will post information about the 2015 Bash as we closer to the event. Here is information from the 2014 Bash to give you a rough idea about how it happens.

Location: Oso Viejo Park / Norman P. Murray Community Center, 24932 Veterans Way, Mission Viejo, CA 92692

Platinum VIP (Reserved seats with dinner): SOLD OUT
Premium Gold VIP (Seating at assigned tables with dinner): SOLD OUT
Gold VIP (Seating at assigned tables): $125

Online sales have ended.

Time: Gates open at 3:30pm (3pm for VIPs). The Taste of the Bash runs 3:30-5pm.

The concert begins promptly at 5:00 pm (runs at least until 9) - rain or shine (we will have a lot of musicians who want to play!)

OK to Bring: Low-back beach chairs (32" or lower), blankets, still cameras, non-alcoholic beverages in factory-sealed containers (no thermoses), small coolers and picnic baskets, and your own food.

Do Not Bring: Large coolers, video cameras, pets, umbrellas, alcoholic beverages, unsealed beverage containers, and canopies. Regular and high-back chairs must be placed on the perimeter of the seating area (you may be asked to move if you are blocking someone’s view).

Thank you for your understanding! While the Bash remains one of the few festivals to allow picnic baskets and coolers, all personal items will be inspected in order for us to comply with the conditions of our state-issued alcoholic beverage permit.

Food: "The Taste of the Bash" features restaurants offering samples of their finest creations. There is no additional charge for the tastings!

You may still bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages (in sealed containers - as noted above).

Food & Beverages for Sale: There will also be soft drinks, wine, and beer available for purchase.

CD Purchases: Help support jazz artists! CDs will be available for purchase (and the artists will be available to autograph them). CD purchases will be cash only. ATMs will be available.

No Smoking: The Center is a non-smoking facility.

Attire: Casual (It is Southern California). Remember, it does get cool when the sun goes down (although you will be able to purchase Birthday Bash Sweat Shirts).

Please Note: For safety and security, all patrons are subject to search, and all items - including coolers - will be inspected upon entry into the Village Green.

If you require accommodation for a wheel chair, please call (949) 582-4501 by May 22.

Press Credentials: You must complete the Press Credential Application and submit your credentials no later than 12 Noon PDT on May 22. Requests will not be accepted after the deadline and only a limited number of credentials will be granted. CLICK HERE for more information.
