Just Putting It Out There….Two days of FREE Jazz….Compliments of the Cleveland Foundation

Okay….so remember how I blogged about the Centennial celebration that the Cleveland Foundation was hosting????

You don’t remember…… how I blogged about how the Cleveland Foundation wants to celebrate 100 years of service to Cleveland by giving the people of Cleveland a free gift each month for the entire 2014 year!

My girls and I took advantage of the Cleveland Foundation May gift….”a free day at the Cleveland Botanical Gardens“!!!  THE LEGO SCULPTURES….WERE AMAZING!




On April 7, 2014 The Cleveland Foundation gifted to fellow Clevelanders, a free TRI-C Jazz Concert featuring, Gregory Porter on June 26th. (Which I did secure one of the free tickets for…..)


However, the free gift for this month…….(drum roll please…..) is 2 FREE days at the TRI-C Jazz Festival!!!!  Tri-C JazzFest runs June 26-28 at PlayhouseSquare. Details on ticketed concerts, with seats ranging in price from $22.50 to $65, can be found at www.tri-c.edu/JazzFest.

When my daughter and I attended one of the concerts, our tickets were $46 each!!

Please do not pass up this FREE opportunity…..No tickets will be required for the Friday and Saturday outdoor concerts June 27 and 28. The performances will start at 3 p.m. and run until midnight each day on U.S. Bank Plaza, located at E.14th Street and Euclid Avenue.
