Syracuse Jazz Fest founder Frank Malfitano has announced the return of Jazz Fest to downtown Syracuse. The event is scheduled for three nights, June 23 through June 25. About 20 clubs will feature music on that Thursday night, and Jazz Fest returns to the main stage in Clinton Square on Friday and Saturday nights.
Jazz Fest was a staple of Central New York life for 35 years, but has been on hiatus for five years. The comeback is possible through sponsorship funding from Amazon and city, county, and state governments.
