Events

The 6th Avenue Corridor hosts a variety of events to celebrate the vibrant cultural influences of the neighborhood. Most notable is our Jazz in July celebration, typically held either the third or fourth Saturday of July. Jazz in July offers a full day of live jazz music, and food vendors feature a wide array of ethnic foods including authentic pupusas, tamales, Mediterranean and Jamaican cuisines, and BBQ. The event is entirely free to the community and made possible through the generous support of our local businesses and community foundations.

The 6th Avenue Corridor is celebrating its 6th Anniversary in 2015. To honor this milestone, we will be hosting several fun events and activities throughout the year. Click on our calendar, and find us on Facebook to stay tuned for updates on all of our activities and announcements!
