Six years ago, Downtown Vision launched the #DTJax Gala to celebrate Downtown Jacksonville and raise funds for the Lively and Beautiful Sidewalks (LABS) Program, which is dedicated to making Downtown more vibrant and active.
With lavish themes, our gala has grown into the must-attend party in Downtown. In the midst of everything going on today, we’re creating a fun, fresh air-filled experience to celebrate Downtown.
This year’s #DTJax Gala will be a romantic Sip and Stroll on the Southbank Riverwalk featuring four unique stops that will allow ample space for social distancing and loads of fun. The evening will feature live music, food and drink from our favorite Downtown establishments, a silent auction and photo spots.
We also welcome the general public to stroll along the Riverwalk on the evening of our Gala to take place in free activities such as a photobooth, hot chocolate, and a ride on the St. Johns River Taxi.
Proceeds from the #DTJax Gala benefit the Lively and Beautiful Sidewalks (LABS) placemaking initiative to turn passive spaces into active public places. LABS is based on four principles: create walkable connectivity, activate the streetscape, enhance public space and engage the community.
