Jazz on Jefferson, a one-night event celebrated on along the historic South Jefferson Avenue, kicks off in just over a week, June 5. The festival attracts more than 3,000 visitors and counting each summer. It showcases the vitality of the neighborhood and institutions located on the street. Saginaw High School drum line kicks off the event at 4:45 p.m. and it ends with a free concert by Cool Lemon Jazz Band at 8 p.m. at First Congregational Church – all other street events will close at that time. Festival-goers can enjoy a variety of activities such as: food from local vendors, a classic car and motorcycle show, Hoyt Library’s hospitality tent and so much more. The Castle Museum will also feature its popular strawberry shortcake. Jazz on Jefferson is a cooperative project of the Jefferson Avenue institutions coordinated by the Castle Museum. It is sponsored by the Castle Museum of Saginaw County History, Ascension St. Mary’s Hospital, Saginaw Arts & Enrichment Commission, Saginaw Celebrates Summer, Jolt Credit Union, Hemlock Semiconductor and Public Libraries of Saginaw.
