Hey y'all! Fingers crossed for sunny JUKE JOINT FEST skies on Saturday. Regardless, we are a "RAIN OR SHINE" event!

Our daytime music stages all have rain plans, and our nighttime music is already inside. Our JJF crew is set to pop up our eight blocks of vendor tents. And everything from monkeys-riding-dogs to a petting zoo will entertain our families. Pray for sunshine, but come party with us no matter what!! Thanks. :)
