Orchard Park Jazz Picnic is a free event taking place Saturday, June 10, 2023, from 12 to 3 p.m., at Orchard Park, 1000 S Duke Street, Durham, NC.
Enjoy an afternoon of picnicking, dancing and relaxing on the lawn.
Live music will be provided by the event’s hosts, the Mint Julep Jazz Band.
Check out our huge day-by-day list of outdoor concerts in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill, and the rest of the Triangle.
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. There will be 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@example.com.
In the event of inclement weather, all updates will be posted in the Facebook event. If it has to be canceled the event will be rescheduled for a later date.
