What began as a small church-sponsored afternoon of music 35 years ago is now one of Jackson’s major fall music festival events with top musical talent on two stages and providing a fun-filled day of family activity.Since the festival began 35 years ago, WellsFest has raised nearly $1.5 million for local non-profit agencies through this alcohol-free and drug-free event.
Although the festival is organized and put on by Wells Church with community volunteers, all proceeds go to this year's beneficiary: Growing Up Knowing — the Mississippi Campaign for Teen Pregnancy Prevention.
