Jazz up July Presented by Stamford Town Center in partnership with Purdue Pharma on the Bud Light Stage is produced by the Stamford Downtown Special Services District and the City of Stamford.

Jazz Up July is an outdoor summer jazz concert series with live music from national and regional headliners, which attract after work crowds and families. Columbus Park is the place to be during the summer as Stamford Downtown produces great music, great dancing, and great times. The event takes place on four Wednesday nights at 6:30pm, July 9 through July 30.

The series has grown in popularity over the years attracting jazz musicians from all over the country and has become a staple of the regional music scene in Fairfield and Westchester counties. 

This year’s series has been expanded to include several different genres of music (not just Jazz).

Chairs and picnics are welcome! (Chairs are not provided, so be sure to bring your own!)
