The Yerwood Center's Community Jazz and Art Fair from 9-6 Saturday. The arts and crafts are in Jackie Robinson Park, on Route 1 East near the Dunkin Donuts. The Jazz is in the Yerwood Center which is on the West Side off exit 6 just south of the highway. It’s the Yerwood’s 65th anniversary. I can’t tell from the website or newspapers, but sounds like the jazz gets going in the afternoon. I would have liked to go to this; the center was built while I was living in Southfield and I always wondered what it was. Click for directions.
