Pick A Place: Do Good; Have Fun

Since the mid-’80’s, WellsFest has been the place to be on the last Saturday of September! It is Jackson’s original music festival. And it is the best place to have fun and help raise money for a deserving local service organization. This year, all the proceeds will be benefitting the Center for Violence Prevention. Come and enjoy the music, play the games, participate in the pet parade or the 5K run/walk, and so much more. It is a drug and alcohol-free, family-friendly festival that is really FUN and draws the best groups around!
