Update, July 25, 2019: There are no links to buy tickets for this music series from the Lan Su Chinese Garden’s website. I found the link from a website of one of the artists scheduled to perform there. It’s at boxofficetickets.com. If you’re buying a meal on the night of the concert you select, you can also purchase it at BoxOfficeTickets.com.
Relax in the intimate setting of the Lan Su Chinese Garden in downtown Portland to hear jazz from talented artists during the Summer Music Series Tuesday evenings in July and August.
The 2019 series starts July 16 and ends August 20. All concerts start at 7:30 p.m. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. for season pass holders and 7 p.m. for single ticket holders.
The stage is in a pavilion overlooking the pond in the garden. The bamboo blinds are closed until the concert is almost ready to start.

There’s a main seating area with folding chairs across the pond from the stage, along with benches and ledges along the pond paths. Cushions are available if you sit on a bench or ledge.

Series tickets, which include admission to all six concerts this summer, are $215 per person for garden members, $240 for non-members, and $160 for students. Single tickets are $40 per person for members, $45 for non-members, and $30 for students.
If you want to have dinner at the concerts, boxed meals are available. The selections change at every concert. Reserve a meal to ensure you receive your choice, because limited quantities are available to buy at the concerts.
Boxed dinners for the entire series are $120 per person. Single dinners are $22 per person in advance and $24 the night of the concert. Meals must be reserved at least five days in advance of each concert; check the dates in the detailed concert schedule on this page.
Lan Su Chinese Garden is located at 239 NW Everett Street in downtown Portland’s Chinatown District. Parking is available in pay lots and garages near the garden. The MAX (light rail) Red, Blue, and Green lines stop two blocks east of the garden at the Old Town/Chinatown station. Plan your trip on the MAX.
