Jazz Festival

Presented in Collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center

Saturday July 20 All Day


The National Weather Service has issued an excessive heat warning for this weekend.

Jazz Festival will continue as planned. Water stations will be located at each venue, shade tents are installed on Friends Field and within Food+Drink, and you are welcome to bring your own shade. Umbrellas and personal tents may be set up in designated areas and must be secured. Pop up tents will not be permitted.

If you are experiencing any issues, or notice anyone struggling with the heat, please find a Caramoor staff member who will be able to assist. Paramedics will be stationed on site for emergencies.
