Jacksonville Events

A growing community for City wide events, Jacksonville welcomes visitors and citizens to festivals throughout the year like Oktoberfest, Winterfest, and the Jacksonville Jamboree. 


We take pride in celebrating throughout the year. Jacksonville Winterfest takes place the first weekend in December and is filled with fun for the whole family. Visiting in February? Join us for the annual Jazz Festival.


Enjoy the warmth of spring with the Jacksonville Jamboree, the city’s spring event of sports tournaments and festival with rides, live music, food, vendors and children’s activities.


If you are visiting during August join us for the National Night community event at Riverwalk with live music, fireworks, food and family fun. Take advantage of warmer weather to seek out the city’s parks and park activities like a Movie in the Park, Summer Concert Series, or Family Park Days. These events are family friendly, typically free and always open to the public.


We honor the courage, bravery and conviction or those who protect our freedom and we come together show our respect at annual events including the Beirut Memorial Observance, Patriot Day Observance, Veterans Day Parade, and the Freedom Fountain Ceremony to name a few.
