What’s This JAzz Crawl Thing All About?
The Jazz Crawl will take place on Saturday, November 9th. There will be bands in shops, cafes, and businesses up and down Cherokee Street, and free community dance classes. If you can, support the venues by buying food, drinks, or other goods, and tip the bands! Wander and enjoy this beautiful day of music.
Getting Around STL
The event hotel for the weekend is Hotel Avyan. For getting around St. Louis, we recommend carpooling wherever possible. Lyft and Uber both operate in St. Louis, as do traditional taxis.
The Metro system has two lines and many buses. Did you know that St. Louis has the 11th largest public transit system in the country? The Red Line on Metro Link is a great way to get from Lambert International Airport to downtown St. Louis, and at the Civic Center stop you can take numerous buses that branch out from the center. The #11 and #73 will take you to Cherokee Street in about 10-15 minutes from Civic Center.
