The North City Jazz Walk filled five blocks of the business district with jazz and food and people on Tuesday, August 15.

Treats! Melissa Banker holds the leashes while son Chace Banker holds the rapt attention of their Norwegian Elkhounds with a piece of Krispy Kreme donut.


Where the feet meet the street.
People were on the street throughout the event, as well as filling the eleven venues.


How's this for a different kind of treat? One of the most popular jazz singers in the Northwest, Greta Matassa, performed at the Arts Council's Showmobile outdoor stage.


The Eats were many and varied. Besides Krispy Kreme, and the Here and There food truck, Leena's and Peking House moved to the street. Here and There had a steady but manageable line all through the event. Easy Monkey, North City Bistro, North City Lounge, and Vesper served food inside.

North City Water had popcorn and snacks. Standard Bakery has Sweet Treats. Bethel Lutheran had root beer floats. Rain City had pretzels and beer.

There were a lot of options.


Hook Me Up is a loud and lively, toe-tapping group. They always play at an outside venue, filling the street with music. They kept the beat going into the night.


Vesper Restaurant and Bar has enough indoor space for the bands and some spontaneous dancers. Music performed by Hopscotch and Daniel Arteaga.


13 year old Brooke Lambert was one of the featured singers at the Bethel Lutheran venue. Young in age, but a mature and professional sounding singer, she's one to watch.


The sun was going down and the Rain City Rotary Beer Garden had the best seats in town.
