Lynch Street Cultural Arts Festival and more this weekend

This is lining up to be a busy weekend for West Jackson. (Cheers for things to do!) On Friday, music will fill the Lynch Street area as Jackson State University presents Jazz on the Plaza (6-11:30 p.m.). Jazz on the Plaza is a free event.

Adding to the musical flavor will be the legendary soul group known as The Spinners. The Spinners are performing for the West Jackson CDC’s Lynch Street Cultural Arts Festival Banquet. The banquet kicks off at 7 p.m. at the M.W. Stringer Grand Lodge and will be hosted by Ted Williams–most recently referred to as “The Man with the Golden Voice”. Tickets for the $50, and proceeds will go towards strengthening the economic and community development efforts of the West Jackson CDC. Call the West Jackson CDC for tickets at (601) 352-6993.

On Saturday, the morning begins with the WESToration Event. We’re sure you’ve already RSVP’d, but here’s a link for those who may have forgotten. If you’re interested in renovating the home of your dreams (even one you are looking to purchase), then this event is for you. You’d be surprised by the number of great homes you can renovate here in West Jackson. WESToration is a free event and runs from 9-11 a.m.

Also on Saturday, and just in time for lunch, is the continuation of the 20th Annual Lynch Street Cultural Arts Festival. This portion of the event takes place on Lynch Street between Dalton and Rose Streets and is an outdoor fun fest complete with a community health fair, children’s village, local and national R&B, gospel, and blues artists; vendors, and much, much more. This is a free event and will last well into the evening. The entertainment lineup is listed at the bottom of this post.

So there’s your schedule for the weekend, complete with rest on the Sabbath! Have fun!
