About the Jazz Festival:


Sponsored by the Downtown Westfield Corporation (DWC), the festival takes place every Tuesday evening during July and August, from 7pm to 9pm. Raindates are the following day, Wednesday, each week. 


Four jazz performances each night can be heard outside in downtown Westfield  at various locations - on Central Avenue in front of Banana Republic, the lawn in front of the North Avenue Train Station, the plaza at the corner of East Broad and North Avenue, and Elm Street in front of the Baptist Church.


“Sweet Sounds Downtown is extremely popular for all ages. From contemporary or traditional jazz to blues to big band, there are live performances to please everyone.” said Sherry Cronin, DWC Executive Director.  “The event is great for businesses downtown on Tuesday night.”  According to Beth Brenner, Asst. Executive Director, “We have a mix of great bands which played in past festivals as well as new bands this year.  Sweet Sounds has become so popular that we have to turn away many talented groups.”


While enjoying the musical performances of “Sweet Sounds Downtown”, enjoy dining at one of Westfield’s fine restaurants or shop and stroll through downtown.  For more information about Westfield and other downtown events taking place, call the DWC at 908.789.9444 for free a Destination Westfield brochure including a shopping, dining and service directory as well as an events calendar.
