Downtown Westfield’s Jazz Night to Merge with 5K and Pizza Extravaganza

WESTFIELD, NJ — Due to the rain predicted for July 23, the Sweet Sounds Downtown Jazz Festival this week will be postponed until July 24, during the 5K & Pizza Extravaganza.

“This will make both events more festive,” the Downtown Westfield Corporation announced on its website, www.WestfieldToday.com. “Once before, several years ago, downtown experienced the same lucky series of events and music played as runners took their marks. Since streets will be closed on Quimby St. and Elm St. during the race, pedestrian-friendly walking will be facilitated, although crowded.”
