The Festival is a family-friendly event. Even the youngest festivalgoers will love the lakefront promenade, the Music in the Park lawn, and other play areas and activities for all ages.


Want to see the concert of your life like when you were 20 but your babysitter is already dancing at the Montreux Jazz Lab? Parents, we’ve got you covered!

A free child care center is located adjacent to the Festival in the Royal Plaza hotel next to Park Vernex (Av. Claude Nobs 7, 1820 Montreux), entrance via Sinatra’s Bar’s terrace by the lake. Childcare professionals welcome your kids aged 3-10 in a sheltered oasis.
