City Park Jazz is back in June, continuing 130 years of tradition.
City Park Jazz is returning to Denver this year for its 35th season, and we’re pumped. This communal celebration is honoring a tradition that dates back to 1986, and will be showcasing a ton of fabulous local artists in the process. Every Sunday, head on over to the park for a free concert celebrating jazz, blues, and salsa music, culture, and community.
Kicking us off on June 13th from 6pm to 8pm are Colorado-natives, The Burroughs, a band with a trademark brand of “sweaty soul music.” The lineup this year features some other great performers as well. On June 25, there will be a special performance paying tribute to Freddy Rodriguez Sr., who we lost during COVID-19 last year (his son, Freddy Rodriguez Jr. will be performing) and a tribute to the legendary, El Chapultepec All Stars.
City Park Jazz will run for 9 family-friendly weeks where you can live concerts every Sunday from 6pm-8pm (except June 20th, which lasts from 5:30-8pm) at the City Park Pavillion.
Beer is allowed (though not in glass bottles), and in return, the park asks for help in keeping the area clean. They’re also looking for volunteers, so if you’re interested, you can head here to find more information.
CPJ is also hand-selecting a number of vendors and food trucks for this event. If you’re the owner of a food truck and you want to be a part of the festival, you can apply here up until May 21st.
Don’t miss out on one of Denver’s most exciting and authentic cultural festivals of the summer, starting June 13th!
