THE RIVER CITY
Like the BBQ, the Music, and the Bourbon, there are so many different things to love about The "River City by the Sea." This event will bring Jacksonville to life with local food and music that showcase the thriving downtown food, drink, and cultural scene and the old-school Florida style that adjoins the St. Johns River and Intracoastal Waterway or the abundance of local businesses and restaurants. Our pride will be on display as we bring together the very best from the First Coast to downtown Jacksonville.
