Add to Calendar 2017-06-18 1:00 pm 2017-06-18 Red Hook Jazz Festival — Day Two at Red Hook Jazz Festival at Urban Meadow “The Red Hook Jazz Festival exists contentedly on the margins, like its namesake neighborhood and much of the music on its bill…The mood in the audience was neighborly, with a higher ratio of small children to youngish adults than I’ve seen at any musical event not expressly pitched as a kids’ show.”

— Nate Chinen, New York Times

“The lineup seems to get better every year at the Red Hook Jazz Festival, held on two successive Sundays at the Urban Meadow. These bands have widely varying instrumentation but a shared independent spirit, an ethic as purposeful and rigorous as it is experimental.”

— David R. Adler, Village Voice

“The Red Hook Jazz Festival deserves an award for ‘event deserving wider recognition’.”

— Tom Greenland, New York City Jazz Record

“Lemme tell ya, this is what makes Brooklyn Brooklyn, it really is.”

— former Brooklyn borough president Marty Markowitz, proclaiming “Red Hook Jazz Festival Day” in Brooklyn at the 2012 RHJF
