Orchard Park Jazz Picnic 2023


Sat Jun 10 2023 at 12:00 pm to 03:00 pm


1000 S Duke St, Durham, NC 27707-1340, United States | Durham, NC

Join us for an afternoon of picnicking, dancing, and relaxing on the lawn at Durham's Orchard Park, with live music by your hosts, the Mint Julep Jazz Band. Inspired by the Jazz Age Lawn Party in New York and similar events in Boston and Richmond, this began as a socially distanced event in 2021 to great success following a long pandemic winter. Now an annual event, the Orchard Park Jazz Picnic draws jazz fans, vintage enthusiasts, regional swing dancers, and passersby who decide to derail that dog walk and join the fun.
This event is free and open to the public. We will have a virtual and physical tip jar for the band - if you'd like to tip in advance, you can Venmo to @Laura-Windley or PayPal to [email protected].
In the event of inclement weather, all updates will be posted in this event. If we have to cancel, this event will be rescheduled for a later date.
Thanks so much to Alexandrea Lassiter of Copper Key Photo (https://www.copperkeyphoto.com) for the incredible photos from last year!
