Get ready to enjoy Jazz on YOUR Green presented by O-pa from the comfort of your own home this year! We'll be jamming Thursday nights at 6:00 PM LIVE on Facebook and YouTube starting July 9, 2020. Lay out the charcuterie, whip up a batch of ice-cold margaritas and join us live online! In the coming weeks, stay tuned for picnic and drink ideas from our food service provider Guckenheimer.  Until then, get to know this year’s talented artists who are excited to give you a taste of various styles of jazz music.
