Smooth Jazz And Great Venues – Johnson’s Beach & Resort

Johnson’s Beach and Resort is located in the casual little northern California town of Guerneville on the Russian River in Sonoma County. It is in the downtown area within walking distance of restaurants and shopping. A few miles away are redwoods, wine tasting and the Pacific Ocean.

The Russian River is an old time resort area. Johnson’s Kamp was started by Gertie and Ernie Johnson around 1918. It has been owned and operated by just three families during all that time. Guerneville is a tourist town and also a bedroom community for beautiful Sonoma County and beyond. It’s a great place to explore or just take it easy.

Jazz on the River is a great way to spend the weekend. This Festival is also often called the Russian River Jazz Festival because earlier in the year the Russian River Blues festival takes place in the same area at Johnson’s Beach in Guerneville. The setting couldn’t be better. Huge redwood trees surround you with the hot sun shining through. Everyone hangs out on lawn chairs and just kicks back while the music plays. If you get too hot, just jump in the warm and inviting Russian River for a dip. Combined both festivals are since 2011 the Russian River Blues And Jazz Festival.
