4th Annual Red Hook Jazz Festival in the URBAN MEADOW


Once again the Urban Meadow will be hosting the Red Hook Jazz Festival in June 2011. This is the fourth year of a homegrown jazz festival featuring an amazing line-up of mostly local talent. When we say local we mean they mostly live and work in NYC but these musicians regularly play all over the country and the world - and we love that they also play in their own backyard. The RHJF is known for great music, a laid back vibe, an outdoor setting, and family friendly good times. Adults pay $5 for 5 hours of music each day and kids are free.
Come out for two days of musical fun in the sun. Link to the Urban Meadow website for complete details on this and other activities at the Meadow this year.
