We Say...

Jazzin’ on Jefferson began as a spirited initiative to unite Detroit’s lower east side, celebrating its vibrant history with a weekend full of music and food. Now in its ninth year, the outdoor fest features 30 jazz, blues and soul acts including Johnnie Bassett, Chris Codish, the Rootsologists, Gigi Mack and urban youth orchestra Urban Stringz II. In an interesting twist, the fest is going to forego traditional carnival fare, instead featuring local entrepreneurs from FoodLab Detroit selling fresh, healthy creations. Also new this year, late night pop-up jazz joints will open inside empty storefronts after the fest closes, letting festival-goers keep the party going while getting a sneak peak inside some historic buildings. The free fest happens on Jefferson Avenue between Marlborough and Ashland streets in Detroit; see jazzinonjefferson.com for more info.
