Join us as we bring four new and exciting concerts to you and your family this summer exclusively at the Topiary Park! Our concerts begin at 12:00 p.m. and we invite you to join the Columbus Metropolitan Library at 11:00 a.m. before each concert for a story time activity and stay after the performances for an art activity provided by the Columbus Museum of Art. Our summer performances are free and open to all ages.

PBJ & Jazz performances are made possible by the support of Encova Insurance, Friends of the Library, and WCBE Radio, along with partnerships with Friends of the Topiary Park, the Columbus Museum of Art, and the Columbus Metropolitan Library.

Current COVID-19 Protocols – Updated as of April 21, 2022


The PBJ & Jazz series is designed to serve all-ages. The recommendations from the CDC and Ohio Department of Health vary by age, so please read the following protocols carefully.

In coordination with current CAPA policies, audience members are NOT required to provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test before entry. In addition, there are currently no requirements regarding mask use in the theatre.

The typical peanut butter and jelly snack will be provided, but we ask that audience members refrain from bringing their own food/drink into the building or eating the provided snack during the event. 

As always, admission is granted on a first-come first-serve basis. Audience members who have purchased their tickets in advance will have until showtime to arrive and claim their seats. After the show has begun, a ticket holder who has not arrived risks losing their spot to another individual who has already arrived and a refund will not be available.

Please check this page again closer to the date of the show you are attending as new data is being collected every day causing policies and recommendations to change quickly. We will update this page with any new policies or procedures as soon as they are put in place.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we navigate bringing our PBJ & Jazz families live and interactive concerts in the safest way possible. To our families who are not comfortable attending this year due to these policies, we appreciate your support and sincerely hope to see you again soon.
