JULY 2020 - The 8th annual FestiVille in Jacksonville has been canceled due to health and safety concerns of spreading the coronavirus. 

This decision was made in order to protect the safety of our volunteers, vendors, and citizens due to the unforeseen future & changing circumstances due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We feel it is the right thing to do for the community.

The festival, which showcases carnival rides, live entertainment, food trucks, and fireworks is attended by thousands every year. It was scheduled for September 25-26. The festival plans to return bigger & better in 2021.
