Non-Traditional Meetup at the Jazz in Glen Ellyn Festival

Join fellow meetup members for Jazz in Glen Ellyn this Saturday, July 13.

The Festival is FREE. Gates open at 4:00 PM.

Experience live jazz in a downtown festival setting featuring a line-up of top Chicago Jazz musicians, delicious food, wine, beer and other refreshments. This free event transforms Main Street Glen Ellyn into a jazz garden oasis. No coolers or outside alcohol. In the spirit of an outdoor event, bringing your own chair is encouraged and appreciated.

Note: We are posting this meetup as a courtesy to those who would like to see jazz in a festival atmosphere this month.  This meetup will be non-traditional because due to the venue and open seating on a closed off city street it would be near impossible for the organizer to reserve a space and/or seating area and provide a central meeting location to accommodate members who show up early, on time, or late.  Accordingly, if you RSVP yes, you'll get info on how to contact Event Organizer Jim PZ should you want to try to meet up when you arrive.  If you can meet up that would be great, otherwise you can enjoy the music on your own in whatever space you can secure. Early arrival a good idea.

Here's the lineup:
4:30 – 5:30 Paul Wertico’s Jazz with Friends
6:00 – 7:00 Mark Colby Quartet
7:30 – 8:30 Dee Alexander
9:00 – 10:30 Elmhurst College Jazz Band featuring Byron Stripling

Details can be found at:

Parking: Difficult.  Street parking available on surrounding streets.  Note the signs for restrictions.  Downtown parking will be severly limited.  Some lots available.  You may want to look into taking Metra - Metra station 1/2 block from the Fest.

Cost: Free

Food: Available on site from vendors

    Sorry I can't make this one, great line-up though. Just heard Dee Alexander at the Jazz Showcase last week and the ECJB is always good. Whoever attends this event, will have a GREAT time. Enjoy!
