WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. – The city hopes to add to its list of annual events with the White Plains International Food and Jazz Festival, which will be held for the first time Sept. 9, according to a press release.
The city teamed up with the White Plains Business Improvement District to organize the event, which will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mamaroneck Avenue between Main and Quarropas streets.
Jazz artists, including the legendary Bob Baldwin, will perform live on the showmobile stage. The Westchester Jazz Orchestra Sextet, the Brian Carter Quartet and Reegal Beegal also will perform.
