Hot Summer Nights

Friday nights, June through September, bring life to the Town Clock Plaza. The streets of downtown Dubuque are filled with the best Jazz, Blues, R&B, and Salsa music from throughout the Midwest. Grab your partner for an evening of dancing under the deep sun-filled sky of Mississippi bluff country for an unforgettable summer night.

No matter what cuisine you think goes best with endless jazz, Dubuque’s eateries are there to serve. The 2017 festival brings local favorite vendors American Bombshell, Adobos, 1st & Main, and many more to delight your taste-buds.
