ABOUT JAMFEST &
FESTIVAL LOCATION

JSU & JACKSONVILLE, ALABAMA WELCOMES YOU!

JAMFEST: Jacksonville Arts & Music Festival was conceived for the primary purpose of creating synergy between Jacksonville State University and the city of Jacksonville, Alabama through a dynamic and unique creative arts and music festival. The goal is to create an annual home for our creative community to thrive, as well as to bring focus on our beautiful, friendly city.

We are incredibly excited that JAMFEST 2017 is being held in conjunction with the renowned 2017 Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo & Ultra Ride cycling event! We anticipate a substantial festival attendance. In fact, the Cheaha Challenge cycling event this year won the bid to host the 2017 Union Cycliste International (UCI) Gran Fondo World Championship Qualifier for the United States! We will be welcoming cyclists and their families to the area for both the Cheaha Challenge and our 2017 JAMFEST!
