Right click the image and hit print! You’ll have a free URBAN SLEIGH RIDE this Saturday at Community First Saturdays! The suggested ride is from our location to Central Station but your human REINDEER may take requests, it is hard to say. If you do travel to Central Station and take our awesome Skyway, you can venture to Kings Avenue Station and get your picture taken with Santa from Noon to 1pm!
Santa will also be on hand from 1:30 to 3 at our location on Coastline Drive, just East of the Hyatt. See you Saturday!
Come to this Saturday’s event and bring a toy for kids who might miss out on the spirit of the holidays. We are gathering as many upwrapped toys as possible and taking them to be given away at the Children’s Christmas Party!
We are super excited to announce Pretty Police State! On our Main Stage (slash) Riverwalk this Saturday! 1:30- 3:30 PM!
Check out the excellent songwriting and banjo jangling here!

We’ve been gearing up for December 7th’s Community First Saturday this Saturday December 7th. Here is a teaser from our latest newsletter:

Here are the top 8 most important things to know about your Community First Saturday on December 7th. We’ll have lots more plus lots of details, but I said I’d keep this short so..

Food Trucks have always been a main attraction at Community First Saturdays and starting Saturday November 2nd, they’ll be firing up with Sawyer Gas! We’ve partnered up with Sawyer Gas and will be topping off our awesome gourmet trucks on Game Day!
Sawyer Gas isn’t just for food trucks, you can get propane in your home or business too! Support Sawyer Gas as they continue to support our community!
Celebrate the night before Community First Saturdays with live music from Corey Smith and Sister Hazel, just up the Riverwalk at the Shipyards! Proceeds go to charity!
We know that visiting Downtown can feel like a logistics challenge. What with the crowds and the one way streets and the perceived parking issues. Community First Saturdays has always tried to help in that regard. Its why we have always had things like FREE BIKE VALET and FREE SKYWAY RIDES (bike allowed)!
But, hey, it is Florida Georgia Weekend, and while we DO HAVE $10 Parking onsite at the old courthouse lot (which is convenient to the game/tailgates and the Landing), you may not want to drive or bike at all.
So in comes UBER!
UBER has just launched in JAX and we’re teaming up with them for Community First Saturdays! WHOOT! What is better than black car service? THAT’S RIGHT! FREE BLACK CAR SERVICE! (up to $20).
First time users will get a free ride thanks to generous folks at UBER. See graphic above for details and use Promo Code: communityfirst
Come Downtown. Have Fun. Be Safe.
Thank you UBER!
