Downtown Elkhart restaurants will extend hours, offer specials for Elkhart Jazz Festival 

Thousands of visitors will converge on downtown Elkhart next week for the annual Elkhart Jazz Festival. This year’s festival boasts six stages, 30 performing groups and a whole lot of good eating June 19-21. 

There are nine vendors and a pop-up restaurant planned for this year’s festival, so jazz fans will get more than their taste of fair food, according to previous Flavor 574 reporting, but other restaurants in downtown Elkhart will be adjusting and welcoming guests. 

Artisan, 523 Tap & Grill, The Electric Brew and New Paradigm Brewing Co., are just a few of the downtown eateries rolling out specials. For hours and deals, see the full list on Flavor 574

The menu is looking a little different, too, with flatbread pizzas, pasta bowls and new sandwiches.
