Three Houston parks are teaming up to celebrate the Houston musicians who keep the tradition of jazz alive and bopping.

The immensely popular series, Jazzy Sundays in the Parks, returns beginning on March 3 at Emancipation Park. The series celebrates the vibrancy and rich tradition of jazz and the incredible Houstonians who preserve the art form.

All concerts are free and family friendly. Guests are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Food and drink will be available for purchase. A pop-up market will be on site at each park with locally crafted items, food and wearables.

 Jazzy Sundays, made possible by a grant from Kinder Foundation, is organized by Discovery Green Conservancy in collaboration with Emancipation Park Conservancy and Buffalo Bayou Partnership

KTSU is the official media sponsor.

Robert Hodge is the Jazzy Sundays artist for 2024. 


All concerts are from 5-7 p.m.
