Sadly, it is not. Not in 2024 anyway.

Our venue has been demolished and turned into condos.

Until we identify a suitable location, we are still on hold.

Yeah, Hardest Part about events, finding a nice location with nearby/attached hotels.


What about the Jacksonville Fairgrounds?

Oh damn!  Yes, finding locations that check all the boxes seems to be a huge challenge lately for all of us!

Bummer! The Jax show is the closest one for us Panhandlers, looking forward to its return some day.

Location is never cheap, never easy but a bad location will destroy you over time while a good one will help you grow.  But well above location stands content.  If you're on point and know your market you can live through a marginal location.  Focus your energies on a bad location and unfocused content forget about it.
