Around Town – October 2023

The 6th Annual Riverfront Jazz Festival

The 6th Annual Riverfront Jazz Festival was another great one! People from all over the country came out to enjoy this Labor Day Weekend event. This year featured acts such as Stanley Clarke, Stephanie Mills, Lalah Hathaway, Morris Day & The Time, Bob James and so many more. The economic impact of this event can’t be understated as hotels, restaurants, food trucks, event vendors and other small businesses welcome increased business from the Riverfront Jazz Festival. We salute Mr. Curtis King, the Founder of TBAAL and the festival and we can’t wait to see the acts he will bring next year!
