The Official Ticket Shop of the 2008 Rochester International Jazz Festival opened on Wednesday May at the corner of East Ave. and Gibbs St. (also known as "Jazz Street") downtown. Before the RIJF starts, the hours will be Monday through Friday, 10 am to 6 pm and Saturday, 10 am to 5 pm. They'll be closed on Sundays and holidays including this Memorial Day holiday (and the weekend). During the festival, the store will be open from 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. nightly.
The Store is the place to get a Festival brochure and schedule, purchase Club Passes and tickets for the RIJF’s Eastman Theatre concerts (check out the RIJF website for discounts for newsletter subscribers on 3 of these concerts). The service charge for Eastman Theatre tickets purchased at the shop is only $1 per ticket (as opposed to much more on Ticketmaster).
