Posted May 28, 2013

The beginning of June is one of the most exciting times to be in downtown Burlington as the whole city comes together for the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival beginning, next Friday, May 31 with the Long Trail LIVE Block Party on Church Street. Performers: Lifted Crew, Otis Grove, Van Gordon Martin Band, iLa Mawana, Gold Magnolias and Clint Bierman & The Necessary Means, will grace us with their presence from 7:30pm-Midnight on three stages located on the Mall Block, the Top Block and City Hall Block! For the following ten days, Burlington will celebrate 30 years of the Discover Jazz Festival with performances around town as well as on the Marketplace.

The Twilight Jazz Series brings us evening performances June 1-6, and June 8-9, featuring over 25 locally known and nationally known musicians. Middle school, high school, and college musicians from all over Vermont will join us on the bricks as well for the Jazz on the Marketplace Series, Monday, June 3-Friday, June 7.

Then the WPTZ News Channel 5 Block Party wraps up the week with a LIVE broadcast and performance by Zili Misik on the Top Block at 5pm. Channel 5 will also broadcast the news LIVE, 5pm-6:30pm from the Marketplace, June 3-7.
