Selby Avenue Jazz Fest

SAT. 9/10 11 AM-7:30 PM. Free.

A true gem of a summer block party, the Selby Avenue takes over the length of Selby with a big stage in the street in front of neighborhood anchor Golden Thyme Cafe where jazz regulars like the Minnesota State Band, students from Walker West Academy, and the aptly named Selby Avenue Brass Band get the neighborhood crowd moving ahead of acts like The Erica West Band and the L Jackson Intl Raggae All-Stars. Along with the music, food trucks and mobile grills fill up fest-goers with BBQ, plus several blocks’ worth of vendors post up in the street with their tents. Be sure to get there for the opening: a New Orleans-style second line by the Selby Ave Brass Band.
