We are also proud to continue to support the organizers at Blues to Green and commend them for their hard work to put together a thoughtful and entertaining experience with a positive impact for our community.”

“This three-day free event, which has been successfully running for 10 years, highlights the beautiful mosaic of Springfield – all different creeds, colors, and backgrounds coming to downtown Springfield to hear nationally recognized and locally known musicians and singers making beautiful music and drawing visitors from all across New England and New York, too. The atmosphere at our Springfield Jazz & Roots festival is unbeatable and the energy seems to grow each year. I hope you’ll join us for a full weekend of music, and more, as we come together to celebrate the cultural renaissance of Springfield.”
