Night Out: Jazz City: Latin Jazz Fest at Humboldt
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
1440 N Humboldt Dr
Age Range: Any
The JazzCity free concert series is a collaboration between the Chicago Park District and the Jazz Institute of Chicago that initiated in 1997 and explores cultural connections in communities throughout Chicago.
The simple premise of the series is to connect people of all ethnicities and generations to the legacy (both musical and spiritual) of jazz in Chicago. We make it accessible by presenting it free of charge, and located right in the neighborhood. Jazz City is co-sponsored by Southwest Airlines.
