Jazz Fest, Food & More!

Jazz music is America’s past and its potential…It can remind us of where we fit on the time line of human achievement, an ultimate value of art.” — Wynton Marsalis

The Twin Cities Jazz Festival was created in 1999 to celebrate jazz, making this quintessentially American music available free of charge to all attendees.The festival continues today, still free and still celebrating a music style that spans all ages, races and lifestyles. Held in Saint Paul since 2009, the Twin Cities Jazz Festival has been credited with helping build the city’s vibrant Lowertown district, where some 90,000 jazz-lovers and jazz-curious mingled in and around Mears Park for the 2016 festival.

Just a few reasons Jazz Fest is our favorite time of the year!  To show just how excited we are, we’ve tasked our Chef and bar team to come up with a spirited food & drink special for the weekend.  Check out the details:
