Jazz Along Welton event organizers hope to boost business at Five Points
DENVER – The organizers of the Jazz Along Welton are offering free pedicab rides from the convention center to their event in hopes of getting people exploring Five Points this weekend. The live music event coincides with the All-Star Weekend activities leading up to Tuesday’s MLB All-Star Game.
“There are other communities like Five Points who would love to love our community,” said LaSheita Sayer, board member for the Five Points Business Improvement District.
Jazz along Welton is a three-day event starting July 10. There will be free live music from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Center of Five Points and Cousins Plaza. The full range and additional information can be found here.
“It’s great that there is music again,” said Anthony Lopiccolo, co-owner of Goed Zuur.
Lopiccolo is thrilled with the return of jazz and hopes the event will attract more customers as well. He said every little bit counts, especially after the Five Points Jazz Festival was held virtually last year.
“Financially, it was a big success. Jazz Fest has always been our biggest day of the year, ”Zuur said.
The event comes at a time when downtown will already be packed with fans for the All-Star Game, and these visitors will be a welcome boost for business after a difficult year.
“We want to make sure that people have the opportunity to come back into the community, down the hall, shop at our small businesses, go to our local bars, explore the history that is part of Five Points. “Sayer said. You can really make it an afternoon. “
