The Newport Jazz Festival, Newport, Rhode Island/Aug. 3-5

This showcase for top jazz musicians, such as Duke Ellington and Billie Holiday in their day, has drawn music lovers since 1954. This year, 10,000 visitors will listen to Dianne Reeves and Kurt Elling, among others. Opening night will feature a cocktail party and music by Dr. John and the Preservation Hall Band, held in the International Tennis Hall of Fame. The rest of the concerts take place at Fort Adams State Park, where attendees relax on lawn chairs. Last year, pouring rain didn't stop things, as 4,000 people happily got wet.

Price: $74 per day; at the gate, daily admission costs $84.
