JSO’s Cathedral Park Jazz Festival SATURDAY, JULY 21
The Jazz Society’s Cathedral Park Jazz Festival is a FREE concert open to the public and held over three days in mid-July at Cathedral Park at the base of the St. Johns bridge in the Cathedral Park neighborhood of Portland. Now in its 38th year, the festival is the longest running jazz and blues festival west of the Mississippi River. The Festival is a major musical event in the heart of summer for the Portland Metro area, and features the region’s best local jazz and blues musicians. It also fosters cooperation and pride in the north Portland neighborhoods of Cathedral Park and St. Johns, and recognizes and promotes the community’s local businesses. The Festival begins Friday night with dynamic Blues, R&B, and Soul. Saturday and Sunday will feature multiple styles of Jazz in all their glory (see Performance Schedule). The stage is situated in a natural amphitheater with a backdrop of the beautiful Willamette River to the west and the mighty St Johns Bridge overhead. The lush, green, and beautifully-maintained festival grounds are the perfect place to bring a picnic or to purchase delicious offerings available from our food vendors. You are welcome to spread a blanket or set up low-profile beach chairs in the grassy bowl in front of the stage.

Please follow these steps: • RSVP that you are interested in going. Please only RSVP if you are actually planning to go. If you are just thinking about it, DO NOT RSVP. Information that you may or may not show up is worthless. • Add a comment in the comment section on the event page giving your suggested time of arriving and a suggested meeting place. If you are going to be waiting in a place where there are a lot of people, try to give some detail that will identify you, like you will be wearing a red hat, something unique. • Check the meetup page regularly to see if other people have also indicated they want to go and make an effort to contact these other people before the event to confirm your plans. • Use the links on Meetup to message other interested people and organize a time and place to meet. Share your cell phone number in a private message. Exchanging cell phone numbers is the best way to insure that you find each other. Use text messages to find each other at the event.
