The 16th Annual Township Jazz Festival returns to Ridgeland Saturday, April 1, 2023. The Russell Malone Quartet will fill the streets of Township at Colony Park with the swinging sounds of jazz, weaving in elements of blues, gospel, and R&B in Malone’s signature style.
Malone is an accomplished performer who has been a member of Harry Connick, Jr.’s big band, worked with Diana Krall, and has appeared with a bevy of name artists including Branford Marsalis, Benny Green, Terell Stafford, and Ray Brown, in addition to releasing his own solo albums. Bring your blankets and lawn chairs to enjoy this free, family-friendly event.
The Township at Colony Park is proud host of this popular springtime festival. Make it a weekend and book your stay at Mississippi’s first AC by Marriott. Begin your getaway at the AC Lounge, which has become a hangout for locals and visitors alike. Featuring a rotating lineup of signature cocktails and small plates made with local spirits and ingredients, the AC Lounge is walking distance from all nearby shopping and dining offerings.
Speaking of exploring, wander the roads to find your new favorite shoes at Arco Avenue or bring home a souvenir from J. Olive Co. Get your home ready for spring at Boxwood, and indulge after a full day with your choice of cuisine at Anjou French bistro, Sombra Mexican Kitchen, Soulshine Pizza or Wasabi Sushi and Grill.
