May 23, 2019 Youngstown, OH – On Saturday, July 13th JAC Live, The Mahoning County Convention and Visitors Bureau and the City of Youngstown will partner with The YSU Summer Festival of the Arts to present the Youngstown Wine and Jazz Fest in conjunction with the weekend’s festivities on YSU’s campus.
This will be JAC Live’s sixth year managing the event, but the efforts are shared city wide. “This event has grown to be the pinnacle of collaboration across our community, and JAC Live is fortunate to not only get to be a part of it, but to now have it grow along with our facilities in Downtown Youngstown,” said JAC Live Vice President, Ken Bigley.
The Youngstown Wine and Jazz Fest will be held in the brand new Youngstown Foundation Amphitheatre, a JAC management Group Facility, which will allow for state of the art sound and production value for the performance by featured artist, Grammy award winning guitar maestro and singer Norman Brown.
