Local Vendor Barn Market

Outside Harmony Garden Concert
May 18th: 6pm-7pm
Head out to the Rotary Bandshell at Cascade’s Park on the 18th to jam along with Jaime Lawrence and Victor McDermott. This is another free event in Jackson (although donations are gratefully accepted). Their music is intended for all ages and abilities. In fact, they even want you to bring your own instruments if you’d like to join in! Surely this is an event you won’t want to miss! (Don’t forget a blanket or chair)

Did you know we share our building with Jackson Makerspace? If you didn’t, now you do! There will be arts, crafts, vendors, and a car show at this outdoor event. The event will last most of the day, so stop on by whenever you can. It’s sure to impress!
