Jazz in June has become more than just a tradition in Lincoln. It’s a summer standard. Organized by the Sheldon Museum of Art and Art Association, University of Nebraska–Lincoln, University Program Council, and many other sponsors, the free Tuesday evening series is one of Lincoln's sublime summer delights.

Enjoy the Jazz in June Market, starting at 5 p.m. at 12th & R Streets, and then stroll onto the University of Nebraska–Lincoln campus to listen to great jazz, beginning at 7 p.m.

For the best seating locations on the plaza west of Sheldon Museum of Art, come early with a blanket or lawn chair for comfort. To insure the safety of all concerned, pets are not allowed at concerts.
