Join your neighbors for an evening of free music in Chaffee Park Aug. 4th!

Our 7th annual Jazz in the Park event is Thursday August 4, 2016 6 – 8:30pm in Chaffee Park (44th and Tejon).

Jazz in the Park is part of Sunnyside’s Denver Days celebrations.  The idea behind Denver Days is for neighbors to get to know one another, and as a result feel safer and more connected to the communities they call home.

This year, SUNI is excited to announce that we’ve hired Denver’s own Delta Sonics to play.  The Delta Sonics were the International Blues Challenge Semi-Finalist- Memphis 2012, and labeled “…the area’s best harmonica-led band.” by The Denver Post and “best blues band in Denver” by Westword.

In addition to a great band, we have lined up 2 food trucks: Mile High Cajun and StreetZFood with food for purchase.  Or, you can bring your own picnic!

This is definitely a kid-friendly event.  Chaffee Park has a great playground and plenty of space for kids to play.  There are restrooms available and plenty of shade.

We hope you will come out and join us for this fantastic event!

SUNI is a group of volunteers who strive to connect neighbors, welcome new businesses and put forth a vision for Sunnyside that honors its past and makes it an even better place to live!  Events like these are paid for and organized by SUNI.  We rely on your paid membership to put on great events like these.  Please consider joining SUNI if you haven’t already.  Memberships are $20/year for an individual; $35/year for a household and $10/year for seniors.  Thank you so much for your support!
