Pay attention, cool cats. Jazz in the Park has released the dates and acts for its upcoming fall season in September, and we're all ears.
Celebrating its 10th year, Jazz in the Park is a free concert held every Wednesday for a whole month with shows starting at 6 p.m. This family-friendly event is a local favorite, meaning no one seems to mind when it takes over the River Market Pavilions twice a year in the spring and fall.
Some seating will be provided, though attendees are encouraged to break out the picnic blankets and lawn chairs, and with cooler temps on the way, it's a pretty ideal time to do so. You can also purchase water, soft drinks, beer and wine with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Art Porter Music Education scholarship fund. Just be sure to leave the coolers at home.
Here’s a look at the fall 2023 Jazz in the Park lineup:
- Sept. 6 - Nicky Parrish (10th anniversary kickoff at First Security Amphitheater)
- Sept. 13 – Dee Dee Jones
- Sept. 20 – Katrice Newbill
- Sept. 27 – Rodney Block (anniversary finale at First Security Amphitheater)
Jazz in the Park happens rain or shine and will move into Ottenheimer Hall in inclement weather.
