Chicago Jazz Fest Kicks Off Labor Day Weekend
Grant Park the Place to be in Downtown Chicago this Labor Day
The 33rd Annual Chicago Jazz Festival kicks off today in Grant Park, Millennium Park and the Cultural Center, located in the Chicago’s Loop. Labeled as the longest running big lakefront music fests in Chicago, the Jazz Festival 2011 will include 49 sets-including Randy Weston, Bobby Watson, and Cassandra Wilson-all within a four day span. Randy Weston will be performing today at the beautiful Jay Pritzker Pavilion, with Friday’s performances by Saxophone Summit moving right next door to Millennium Park. Look for the main events at this year’s Jazz Fest to swing on over to its original home at Grant Park and take place all throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday. So if you’re downtown searching for a new Loop apartment over the Labor Day weekend, stop by Grant Park to enjoy some cool jazz beats in the hot summer sun, and send off the warm weather season in style.
