Jazz in the Park is back with free concerts every Sunday in September.
When it comes to September in Alabama, the evenings can decide to be a bit sultry or else be refreshingly cool after a hot summer. Start your fall by going to a staple event, a free outdoor jazz concert series held in Huntsville’s iconic downtown greenspace, Big Spring Park. The stage is set up on the green on the east side of Big Spring Park, cradled by the canal, Church Street, and the steep rockface below Huntsville City Hall.
For the best seats, come early! Bring a picnic dinner or enjoy the food trucks set up on Church Street. After the concert, you can rent a bike and tour the rest of Big Spring Park or enjoy one of the many pubs and restaurants downtown.

Know Before you Go
What to bring: Friends and family and lawn chairs. Coolers and picnic dinners are encouraged, but outside alcoholic beverages are prohibited except within a purple to-go cup. Pets are welcome on leashes. The Park provides free cold water – it’s still hot out there, so stay hydrated – and a portable restroom truck.
Where to go: The concert is in East Big Spring Park, between the pond and the Courthouse.
Parking: I suggest the Clinton Avenue Parking Garage, two blocks away from the Park. There are several flights of stairs between the Courthouse and the Park for those with limited mobility. Instead, park on Williams Avenue or Monroe, or if you are in the Clinton Garage, walk west on Clinton down the hill and turn left on Church Street to get to Big Spring Park.
