WELLSFEST: Jackson's First Festival

Held annually the last Saturday in September, WellsFest is Jackson's first festival and has been named one of the top 20 events in the Southeast. The proceeds from this family-friendly, alcohol-free music festival benefit a local non-profit. 

Established in 1984 by Wells United Methodist Church as a gift to the community, WellsFest's goals were simple:

•  to help a deserving local service organization

•  to provide a place where people can have fun and enjoy good  
   music in a drug-free and alcohol-free environment.

•  to show that God's love can bring this community together in
   support of a worthy cause.

As the crowds  have grown, WellsFest has become a "must do" item on the fall social calendar. Join the fun on September's last  Saturday in Jamie Fowler Boyll Park.  



WellsFest is . . .

  • A family friendly music festival, admission-free, drawing the best groups around. Entertainers donate their time and talent to provide continuous music.
