The 36th annual Tri-C JazzFest Cleveland, presented by KeyBank, takes place July 9-11 2015 for a sizzling weekend of entertainment at PlayhouseSquare. The festival features nine ticketed concerts inside the theater district’s historic venues and 18 free outdoor shows on U.S. Bank Plaza.
Musical offerings run the gamut from blues to big band, zydeco to gypsy swing, Latin to calypso to bop and – of course – straight-ahead and smooth jazz.
This year’s festival looks to build on the energy created in 2014, when JazzFest shifted to summer after decades as a spring tradition. The event brought more than 20,000 people downtown.
Tickets for the year’s shows are available through the PlayhouseSquare Box Office at 216-241-6000 or online.
Full festival passes – which provide tickets to all nine shows – can be purchased for $200 before March 16. A 20 percent discount is available up until the festival for those buying tickets to three or more concerts.
