Jazz in the Park has expanded its hours for the fourth season, with an official opening time of 12PM. Congo Square will play host to an arts and crafts village, accompanied by a jazz trio and full bar. The Marketplace at Armstrong Park, in collaboration with the Institute of Community Development (icdnola.org), will offer fresh and prepared foods, and a variety of food trucks will be on hand to add to the array of menu choices.

Music runs from 4 - 8PM this season, as Jazz in the Park welcomes a select group of pre-opening acts to its stage.

About PUfAP: The People United for Armstrong Park is a volunteer-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that led the community effort to re-open Armstrong Park. Our primary work focuses on coordinating and collaborating with individuals and institutions to catalyze Armstrong Park into a premier hub for the city's cultural economy. We aim to connect individuals in the community to their culture and history by establishing the park as a nurturing, living environment for the arts, and provide opportunities to ensure their success and accomplishments in their chosen craft.
