JACKSONVILLE, Ala. – Nearly 1,500 cyclists will converge on Jacksonville State University for the 2017 Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo and Ultra Ride weekend on May 21. This year's race is bigger and better than ever, as it will serve as the US qualifier for the Union Cycliste International Gran Fondo World Championship to take place in France in August. 
 
With hundreds of cyclists lodging on campus for the weekend, JSU is launching a new tradition – the Jacksonville Arts and Music Festival, or JAMFEST, to showcase area art and culture for these visitors. Mark your calendar for Saturday, May 20, for the all-day festival featuring live music and fine and performing arts.
 
Enjoy live music, arts and crafts, and food vendors. Local and university artists will display, demonstrate and sell their works, including glassblowing, painting, screen printing, knife making, drawing, ceramics and solar photography.
