DVI Updates 

Spark Walk + Creator Innovation Day Were a Success!

A massive turnout, perfect weather, art and innovation all along the streets of #DTJax! Thank you to all of you who came out in support Spark Walk and Creator Innovation Day!

A special thanks is also in order to Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office, Jim Webb, all of our artists, performers, Creators, #DTJax Ambassadors, CSC security, City Rescue Mission, volunteers, interns, board and staff.

This was truly a fantastic way to celebrate all the amazing things about #DTJax with innovation, creativity, art and culture.

Also thank you to the Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront for hosting Creator Innovation Day and to JAXCoE and One Spark Ventures for sponsoring and curating the event.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for the next First Wednesday Art Walk on May 4, United We Rock!

Jazz Fest After Dark in the Core:
There is a lot of excitement surrounding this year’s Jacksonville Jazz Festival, and rightly so since it’s back in the core of #DTJax! The fun does not end with Jazz Fest, as there is Jazz Fest After Dark with ten stages, over 60 acts and all for free. Make sure to check out the website for more information and the full line-up.

So mark your calendars for May 27-28 for #JFADjax!



PSA for #DTJax Residents, Employees and Vistors:

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office will now be penalizing those who jaywalk with a hefty $114 fine. So, save yourself the hassle and only cross in crosswalks when the walking guy gives you the okay!
