Monday Night Jazz in Bushnell Park
Serious fans from mainstream to smooth to avant-garde jazz come to hear the music, camp down with their blankets, lawn chairs and coolers up close to the park's pavilion stage. Others come to the park not just for the free music, but also to picnic or party on the lawn, basking in the almost tactile communal vibe that has become one of the hallmarks and great traditions in Hartford's free, jazz-in-the-park summer festivals.
Monday Night Jazz in Bushnell Park opens its weekly series of six consecutive concerts on Monday, July 6, running through August 10. The Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz, a weekend extravaganza whose aromatic food booths and big, bustling turnouts transform the park into a vibrantly thriving fairground, bazaar and concert site from Friday, July 17, through Sunday, July 19.
