Charlie Parker Festival

The annual Charlie Parker Festival is almost upon us! Every year we go to two days of great music in the park. This year there are three days of music. I expect to be at the Saturday and Sunday performances. But I encourage you to attend Friday night as well! Remember, Friday and Saturday are at Marcus Garvey Park and Sunday is at Thompkins Square Park (East 6th street and Avenue A)

  • Beth E.

    Yep.... Ill be there with a sign. But it is packed!! So plan on getting there by 2:30 if you want to find us and sit together. Either way... It's a wonderful time!

    Can I sign up for tomorrow (Saturday)? Will someone be there with a sign again?

    August 23, 2013

  • Beth E.

    As I said below... it is just a big atrium. I will have a meetup sign I will hold up from time to time and I have very blonde hair that is easy to spot. I am wearing a turquoise blue top over jeans. I will be there by 7.

  • Jeff S.

    Yes, Bird is certainly the Word!

  • Beth E.

    On Friday and Saturday I will bring my laminated Jazz Meetup sign and hold it up in the air from time to time. :)

  • Beth E.

    Unfortunately I can't make it this year on Sunday...but why don't people meet on the corner of the park at Ave A and 6th street?

    August 22, 2013

  • Lynn R.

    I will be coming on Sunday afternoon. Where are people meeting?

    August 22, 2013

  • Beth E.

    The area where the music will be is a big atrium... it is impossible to say where we are going to sit until we get there. I will be there Friday and Saturday but not on Sunday. I am easy to spot with my blond hair... look for me and then we should all be able to get together.

  • Carol B.

    Is there a meeting place? Do we wear funny hats or paper name tags for ID?

    I'm a little confused… Are we meeting at a certain location, at a certain time, each evening? Where and when? How do we find each other?
