Festival Fever: Kingston’s Wall Street Jazz Festival on Saturday

August 28th, 2014, 3:00 pm by Greg

The annual Wall Street Jazz Festival is slated to return to the corner of Wall and North Front streets in Kingston on Saturday (August 30), and if you want to know what makes this jazz fest different than any other in Greater Nippertown, just take a look at the list of bandleaders – they’re all women.

And, of course, the festival is free, too.
