‘Dig That Jazz on the Hill’ is a Jazz and Blues concert organized by the members of Dignowity Hill Neighborhood Association. The concert will take place on Saturday, November 12th at Lockwood Park from 1:00 – 5:00 PM.
The concert is being put on at NO CHARGE to the audience. The plan is to make this concert an annual event and work closely with our surrounding neighborhoods to bring in such events which focus on collaboration, the Arts, and community involvement in a crime free, positive environment. We expect the event to draw large crowds of people citywide with the promotional partners including Luminaria: Contemporary Arts Festival and The Dignowity Park Project by Public Space East.

The Dignowity Hill Neighborhood Association is holding our first annual “Dig that Jazz on the Hill” Music Festival. The event is to be held on November 12, 2016 in Lockwood Park in the Dignowity Hill Historic Neighborhood. We are excited to announce our first call for event design entries.
During our DHNA meeting yesterday evening, the DHNA Board presented a statement on the sale of parks in the Dignowity Hill neighborhood. See attached for the letter from the DHNA Board of Directors.
Thank you everyone for working together on bringing this discussion to a conclusion. Now, it is time to get to work on activating our parks throughout the neighborhood. We will be arranging the conversation with community members and partners on a way forward immediately.
