Jam Fest Arts & Music Festival
Jacksonville Arts & Music Festival was conceived for the primary purpose of creating synergy between Jacksonville State University and the city of Jacksonville, Alabama through a dynamic and unique creative arts and music festival. The goal is to create an annual home for our creative community to thrive, as well as to bring focus on our beautiful, friendly city.
We are incredibly excited that JAMFEST 2017 is being held in conjunction with the renowned 2017 Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo & Ultra Ride cycling event! We anticipate a substantial festival attendance. In fact, the Cheaha Challenge cycling event this year won the bid to host the 2017 Union Cycliste International (UCI) Gran Fondo World Championship Qualifier for the United States! We will be welcoming cyclists and their families to the area for both the Cheaha Challenge and our 2017 JAMFEST!
JAMFEST 2017 will be held on the breathtakingly-beautiful campus of Jacksonville State University. Our performance stages, artist booths, and kids’ activities won’t be hard to miss. The primary festival activities will held along Highway 21 / Pelham Drive in Jacksonville, positioned in front of JSU’s Stephenson Hall & Theron Montgomery Building (TMB). Parking will be available in various locations–signage and personnel will indicate where you may park. In addition to the festival activities, JSU’s Department of Art will have art exhibitions on display in both their main gallery space in Hammond Hall and in the gallery space within the Department of Art Roundhouse building.
Come experience truly one-of-a-kind live music, drama, and art showcases, as well as activities for kids and the whole family!
