(April-May) With an all-star line-up and events all over Cleveland, the Tri-C Jazz Fest has been bringing the best in jazz for over 31 years. Recent performers include Patti Austin, Joe Lovano, The Roots and Ramsey Lewis. Most of the headlining performances take place in the beautiful Allen Theater, PlayhouseSquare. Tickets to the performances can be a little expensive if you’re looking for the best seats in the house. However, a “Create Your Own Ticket Package” deal can save you 15% when you purchase tickets for three or more shows.
