Join us the first Saturday of each month for Community First Saturdays. All are welcome and it’s free to attend. This family friendly event features entertainment, activities, food trucks, demonstrations… just a little bit of everything that makes Jacksonville a great place to live. Be sure to visit this site often because vendors and activities change every month.
The Community First Saturdays take place along the beautiful St. Johns River on Jacksonville’s North Bank, just south of the Jacksonville Landing.
Community First Saturdays, a JAX Chamber initiative, kicked off Saturday, October 6, 2012 on the Northbank Riverwalk Downtown and has been going strong ever since. (We take the summer months of July and August off!)
Now, every first Saturday of the month we feature a relaxing Tai Chi class and lots of fun activities from our community partners.
Sometimes we add in fitness classes, bike valet, bike tours, an urban scavenger hunt as well as a lounge with craft beers (some local!), handmade sangria, and some of the best food trucks in the city.
There is ample parking Downtown and metered street parking is free. JTA has also generously activated the Skyway for FREE from 9am to 5pm, making your excursions to nearby Downtown destinations just a free ride in the sky away.
Please join us each month for Community First Saturdays as we celebrate our community, our vibrant Downtown, and our excellent quality of life in the Jacksonville area. Community First Saturdays is made possible by Community First Credit Union and many more benevolent sponsors.
