Spark Walk + Creator Innovation Day Have Arrived! 

This Wednesday, April 6, we will celebrate Creators on the streets of Downtown Jacksonville with the First Wednesday Spark Walk from noon to 10 p.m. This is the perfect opportunity to spend the afternoon with coworkers, friends or family Downtown. With Creators, artists, food trucks, live music and entertainment, this is a day you won’t want to miss! And don’t forget about Spark Walk After Dark in The Elbow for continued fun, art and music till late.


Thursday, April 7, will be Creator Innovation Day at The Hyatt which provides Creators and Entrepreneurs with information, tools and workshops to move ideas from concept to company. This all day conference is a great resource for those looking to start a business, for small business owners or for entrepreneurs. There is still time to get your early bird ticket for only $20, so make sure you register here today.

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!
