[ARCHIVED] Summer fun in Downtown Jackson

People walk by classic cars parked on a downtown street

Downtown Jackson is the place to be if you’re looking for summer fun! The Downtown Development Authority (DDA) has a packed summer event schedule for all ages to enjoy. 

The popular Cruise In classic car shows are planned for the fourth Friday of the month through Sept. in the evening hours. Nearby in downtown’s TRUE Community City Square, concerts will be happening at the same time as the car shows. That’s also where you can watch family-friendly movies in the open air for the Friday Film Nights. 

If you’re looking for lunch during a weekday, take advantage of Food Truck Tuesdays, which brings together food truck vendors in the City Square the first and second Tuesday of the month through Sept. Food truck events also feature live music. 

A summer staple for decades, the Grand River Farmers Market provides locally grown produce, flowers, crafts and much more! The market is open every Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. through the end of Oct. 

This will be the first summer of downtown’s Social District. The district allows participating bars to serve alcoholic beverages to patrons, who can spread out and enjoy them in the open areas of Downtown Jackson. 

All downtown events organized by the DDA are free to attend. To keep up on all the summer fun, see a schedule online by visiting
