The 2007 Jazz in the Square festival will take place Thursday, July 26, through Saturday, July 28, with free music and other activities planned at several venues throughout downtown Syracuse. This year marks the sixth year of the festival, with concert stage acts at Clinton Square and Hanover Square, and performances also planned at downtown music clubs and at the Jazz Central Theater on East Washington Street.
Roving musicians throughout the Armory Square district will also complete the army of jazz artists who will combine to transform the Salt City into Music City for a long weekend of jazz in all its forms.
Organized by the Central New York Jazz Arts Foundation (CNYJAF), the festival has become an anchor event for Syracuse’s cultural revival. In addition to three concert stages, Jazz in the Square boasts the Jazz Alley Restaurant Row, a Wine Court, Late Night Dance Parties at The Ohm Lounge in Armory Square and the Hanover Square Club Crawl, which will include acts at The Coffee Pavilion, the Bull & Bear Pub and Downtown Manhattan’s.
This is the first year the Connective Corridor bus will offer free park-and-ride service from the Syracuse University campus for anyone attending the event. The public will be able to park for free in the Quad 4 parking lot across from the College Place bus stop. The bus can also be picked up at any Centro bus stop along its route, and will provide convenient transportation to Armory Square and the many arts and cultural venues throughout downtown and the University Hill.
The festival is made possible through support by Partners Trust Bank and New York State Sen. John A. DeFrancisco, as well as other community sponsors.
