It’s Tuesday—what are you doing with your evening? How about a little downtown music, relaxation, and fun, maybe with some shopping and outdoor dining? Tuesday evenings bring the Sweet Sounds Downtown Jazz Festival to Downtown Westfield, and it’s become quite the popular event! Check out what it’s all about.
Meet the Sweet Sounds Downtown Jazz Festival
Every Tuesday night from 7pm to 9pm (rain date Wednesdays) through August 29, five local jazz groups take to the streetsof Downtown Westfield to serenade residents and visitors as they browse the stores and shops, dine on restaurant patios, orsimply relax in the park. The music ranges across the jazz spectrum from blues to big band to classic contemporary, and musicians are both new and returning artists.
Find the Performers
The musical groups are spread throughout Downtown Westfield. You can find one at Central Ave in front of Banana Republic, another on the lawn at the North Ave Train Station, another at the plaza on East Broad and North Ave, another on Elm Street in front of the Baptist Church, and the last at Foundation Park across from the Gallery U Boutique.
Special Activities Throughout August
August 1 is National Night Out, so in addition to jazz, you can enjoy some great events and activities at North Ave Train Station with the Westfield Police, Fire Department, and DPW.
August 29 is the closing of the festival and features a few additional activities. At the Westfield Ballroom, you can enjoy some student and professional dance performance, and Quimby Street will be closed for a special closing celebration.
Spend the Evening at the Sweet Sounds Downtown Festival
Take a stroll through scenic Downtown, maybe get some shopping done or just enjoy the fresh summer air. Stop by a local restaurant and dine outdoors to the soft sounds of jazz. Many downtown restaurants feature outdoor patios, like Ferraro’s, Mojave Grill, Sweet Water, Theresa’s, Brick Oven, and more. It’s really a fun and relaxing night on the town!
