Jazz in the Park is one of Denver's iconic summer events. Free concerts are Sunday afternoons through August at City Park. The dates remaining for this summer are: 7/13/14 The Dave Watts Ensemble of Deepness 7/20/14 The Dexter Payne Quintet 7/27/14 Dan Treanor’s Afrosippi Band Featuring Erica Brown & Merrian Johnson 8/3/14 Chris Daniels & The Kings with Freddi Gowdy
As a person who is not inclined to the outdoors I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy Jazz at the Park. I plan to go back at least one more time before the season is completed. Even though the concert is well attended, my estimate is 300 attendees; I was able to clearly listen to the music. I would advise taking your own chair or blanket and cooler.
City Park Jazz concerts are located at the bandstand by the Pavilion on Ferril Lake in Denver's City Park. City Park is also home to Denver’s Zoo, and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. The Park is located just East of Downtown, at Colorado Boulevard and 17th Avenue.
Free parking is available throughout the park—please be a good neighbor and avoid parking on side-streets around the park. Or better yet, ride your bike and enjoy free bike parking monitored by City Park Jazz volunteers at the Bike Corral in the Pavilion from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
