Head to Cathedral Square every Thursday this summer for some tunes.

With the kind of winters we slog through in Wisconsin, summer is an important time to treat yourself to the great outdoors. Jazz in the Park is the perfect way to kick off the season, with free performances running every Thursday from May 30 to Aug. 29.

The music starts at 6 pm in Cathedral Square Park (520 E. Wells St.), but the old-timers know to come early to grab happy hour drink specials starting at 5. Stay tuned to see which 2019 food vendors will be supplying your dinners en plein air, too.

Jazz in the Park isn’t limited to jazz; big band, funk, and reggae are just a few other styles you’ll hear throughout the summer. Check out this year’s eclectic lineup (and take a trip down memory lane and review last year’s eclectic list of musical acts).
