City Park Jazz Announces 2017 Lineup For 31st Season Celebrating Community in Denver
DENVER – The 31st season of City Park Jazz may prove to be its most eclectic season yet.
City Park Jazz is a celebration of community that began in 1986, featuring only local musicians. Each Sunday evening throughout the summer brings anywhere from 8,000 to 12,000 neighbors from around the City Park neighborhoods and all over Colorado to enjoy the amazing talent that calls the Centennial State home, all free of charge. A handful of carefully selected vendors and food trucks round out this festival-like atmosphere that brings smiles to faces and our community closer together.
“We’re heading into our 31st season as excited as ever,” says Bob Nelson, President of the non-profit City Park Jazz Board of Directors. “Our lineup this year includes some fantastic local jazz greats, and we’re reaching across genres and styles to really provide something for everyone who loves the community we call home.”
We are also announcing our call for concert volunteers and sponsors! City Park Jazz is an all volunteer run event and we need YOU to make it happen. Space is limited. Visit CityParkJazz.org for more information regarding volunteer and sponsorship opportunities.
As a reminder, only 3.2 beer is allowed in the park (no glass containers) , and please help us keep the park clean by disposing all trash using the dumpsters provided. For a complete list of Denver Parks rules, see bit.ly/CityParkRules.
The season spans 10 Sunday evenings from 6–8 p.m. starting June 4. The free concerts are staged at the City Park Pavilion. For more information, bios and photos of each act, please refer to CityParkJazz.org/calendar.
