​Animals and All That Jazz

​​​Check back soon for 2018 details!

In 2017, this Thursday night tradition returned for the 30th year in a big way! Animals & All That Jazz had its first year under the all-new Bicentennial Pavilion to offer more space to eat, drink, sit back or dance. The summer concert series featured sensational music from all genres of jazz and artists like Rob Dixon and West Central Quartet.
