The 38th Annual WellsFest is this Saturday!

Saturday, September 29th

JACKSON, Miss. (MISSISSIPPI WEEKEND) -

Wells Fest is known as Jackson’s original music festival. It’s back for the first time since the pandemic started, and going strong for an amazing cause. Over the years, WellsFest has been able to raise more than $1.5 million for non-profits in our area.

This year’s beneficiary is the Good Samaritan Center. Their HUB for the Hungry initiative helps in their mission to provide fresh foods to struggling families in our area.

Art Night is Tuesday, September 20th at 5:30 p.m. at Duling Hall in Fondren. The online auction is happening now, but live bidding starts Tuesday at 5 p.m. Come out for, live paintings, an art auction, and of course -live music!

At WellsFest, you can count on enjoying a large part of the festivities for free! Admission and parking are free at Jamie Fowler Boyll Park for the festival.

WellsFest kicks off with a pet parade that morning at 9:30 a.m. The music gets started at 10 a.m. and goes non-stop until 4 p.m. - It is a music festival after all!

You don’t want to miss the tunes- so when you get hungry, food trucks will be around with options for every palette.

The kids can stay busy in the children’s area, but they might be the ones keeping the adults off their phones since the online silent auction will be going on!

You can also have a jam session while plant shopping during the plant sale.
