Schedule of events for free Jazz on Jefferson

by Janet I. Martineau
One of Saginaw’s premier summertime events takes place Wednesday, June 8.
Jazz on Jefferson might be labeled the ultimate in block parties as musicians, food vendors and artists celebrate along the street of one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods, one which stood at the edge of a once-thriving downtown and which was THE address to have.
Jefferson is now home to several churches, Hoyt Library, the Castle Museum of Saginaw County and restored homes -- all of which play a role in the annual Jazz on Jefferson event which includes carriage rides and an antique car show as well as a guided walking tour.
Jazz on Jefferson runs from 4:45 p.m. to 9 p.m. All events are free, except for a nominal fee for the carriage rides.
