Posted April 29, 2019

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Third Thursday Jazz series hosted by the Fort Worth Public Library. In addition to a stellar lineup of local and national talent for the five monthly concerts May through September, the Library has unique programs planned for adults and children throughout the city.

New this year, the signature concerts held May - Aug. at the Central library, 500 W. 3rd St., each “third Thursday” will be simulcast to the East Regional and Southwest Regional branches to reach a wider jazz-loving audience. This is ideal for commuting families and other patrons who prefer not to drive into Downtown.

Those coming to the live performances each Third Thursday at the Central Library can come early for coffee provided by local coffee shop, Vaquero Coffee, and to review the newest editions to the jazz collection of materials available for check out. In fact, all patrons at Central, East Regional or Southwest Regional who check out jazz items on performance nights will receive a special 10th Anniversary tote bag. 

More jazz, more programs

More than 30 jazz-related programs, performances and events will take place May through Sept. for adults and families alike across all 17 of the Library’s branches. Find the nearest Jazzy Painting, Jazz Coffee Hour or Jazzy Giants Story Time near you by visiting the Library’s website. Please note: Painting events are open to anyone 18 years or older and do require registration.

All events are free, and all are welcome to take part in the festivities.

Third Thursday Jazz is sponsored by the Fort Worth Public Library Foundation and the Friends of the Fort Worth Library. Additional community support and promotional consideration is made possible by the Fort Worth Business Press, KERA Art & Seek as well as the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce.
