Jazz Fundraiser at Brickyard Brewing Co. to Support Northwest Jazz Festival

Sunday, April 14 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Enjoy an afternoon of jazz from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, April 14, at the Brickyard Brewing Company to support the Northwest Jazz Festival. The fundraiser, hosted by the board of directors, aims to offset the rising costs of Western New York’s largest outdoor jazz festival.

Featuring music by My Cousin Toné, light hors d’oeuvres, a basket auction, and a cash bar, tickets are priced at $35 (with discounted tickets available if purchased through a board member).


In a release, the festival stated, “Local businesses have generously donated items for the basket raffle in support of the festival. All proceeds from the fundraiser will help offset the rising costs of producing the annual event. Last year, the festival faced many challenges due to unexpected increases in insurance and logistics costs.”

Chairwoman Carol Calato expressed her hope to raise enough funds to maintain the high caliber of the event. “Over the past 22 years, this festival has become Western New York’s largest outdoor music festival highlighting jazz music,” Calato said. “What is most significant and amazing about the growth of the festival is that it has remained free to the public.”

This year’s Jazz Festival will return to the Village of Lewiston on August 23-24.

According to Tony Zambito, Music Director, states, “In 2024, the Jazz Festival will proudly present the theme ‘Celebration of the Great American Songbook,’ highlighting a lineup of international and regional jazz artists who will breathe new life into timeless songs everyone loves.”

Music Director Tony Zambito has been curating the music lineup since October. “With unique and creative programs that shine a spotlight on the beloved art form known as the ‘Great American Songbook,’ this year’s festival promises to be truly unforgettable.”


Tickets can be purchased online at www.lewistonjazz.com or in person at the Upward Niagara Chamber of Commerce office (895 Center St., Lewiston) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. Tickets also can be purchased directly at a nominal discount from board members.
