Jazz in the Garden

Join an all-star lineup of Pittsburgh jazz greats at the coolest event of the summer.

Beat the summer heat with cool tunes and full blooms as we bring some of Pittsburgh’s finest jazz musicians together for one very special evening of music, food and libations. For this year's edition of the annual celebration, our headliners, the Benny Benack Big Band – led by Pittsburgh jazz icon Benny Benack, Jr. and featuring Benny Benack III – will be joined by additional jazz superstars for an unforgettable night in our lush Outdoor Garden. 

Guests at Jazz in the Garden can pre-order locally-sourced picnic box meals prepared by the chefs at our award-winning Café Phipps, and chase the summer heat away with refreshing beverages at the wine and beer cash bar. Rain or shine, the show will go on!
