Red Hook Jazz Fest at the Urban Meadow June 8 and 15

One of our great local events and organized by residents of the Columbia Waterfront District, the Red Hook Jazz Festival is this Sunday, June 8 at the Urban Meadow Community Garden, 1 pm - 6pm. David Adler, at the Village Voice jazz blog just called it One of the 10 Best Jazz Shows This Month and wrote that "The lineup seems to get better every year at the Red Hook Jazz Festival. These bands have widely varying instrumentation but a shared independent spirit, an ethic as purposeful and rigorous as it is experimental."

The shows will be this Sunday, June 8th and next Sunday June 15. Bring your picnic blankets and your kids and hang out to listen to some of the best music around! There's something for everyone - Time Out NY's listing says the Red Hook Jazz Festival is the "rare music fest that's both family-friendly and cutting-edge"

The Urban Meadow is at the corner of President Street and Van Brunt Streets in Brooklyn. Shows are 1pm-6 pm. Tickets are $10 for adults, kids are FREE. For directions to the Urban Meadow go to
