WellsFest CARES:
Musician's Emergency Fund
and New Concert Series

WellsFest, the annual music festival of Wells United Methodist Church, has been a long-time staple of the Jackson fall event scene. For over 40 years, the generosity of musicians donating their time and talent has made the event possible. Now, a group has come together to give back to local musicians and create more programming to keep the spirit of WellsFest alive all year long through the WellsFest CARES Fund at the Community Foundation for Mississippi.


WellsFest Cares Concert Series

  • WellsFest Cares Concert Series

    The WellsFest Cares Concert Series is an addition to WellsFest, Jackson's Original Music Festival held annually the last Saturday of September. 

    These free concerts aim to generate awareness of and support for the WellsFest Cares Emergency Fund, which was established to help musicians — the driving force behind WellsFest — in times of need. The fund, held at the Community Foundation for Mississippi, provides emergency assistance to local musicians facing challenging situations.

    WellsFest Cares Concerts are presented quarterly on Sunday afternoons at Wells United Methodist Church.

  • The wellsfest cares fund

    In line with the spirit of camaraderie that has defined WellsFest, the WellsFest Cares Fund at the Community Foundation for Mississippi was established to support local musicians experiencing emergencies.

    WellsFest Cares is more than just a fund; it's a tribute to the power of unity, love, and music. It's a safety net for musicians facing challenging times.
