Playhouse Square is the place to be in Cleveland this week, as the 36th annual Tri-C JazzFest brings live music, great food and kid-friendly fun to the theater district. 

In addition to nine indoor concerts July 9-11, JazzFest presents two long days of free outdoor concerts on the Scene Stage at Euclid Avenue between East 13th and East 14th streets.

Neighborhood restaurants will have a wide variety of grab-and-go meals at tents along Huron Avenue, and they will be open for pre- and post-concert indoor dining. Tri-C's hospitality management program will have its own tent on Euclid, where chef instructors and special guests will present cooking demonstrations. 

The festival makes a fine family destination. From 3-6 p.m. Friday and 3-7 p.m. Saturday, children can enjoy crafts, music workshops and storytelling sessions in the U.S. Bank KidBop station inside The Galleries at CSU at 2121 Euclid. The Rust Belt Monster Collective, a group of artist and illustrators, will be at work on Huron near Euclid on Saturday creating an improvised painting. At 9 a.m. on Saturday, join in for yoga under the chandelier!
