“Unity Plaza’s event calendar is taking final shape!   Our year-round programming is designed to educate, entertain, and electrify our community, and we’re certain it will do just that.

In coordinating the programming for the plaza, we are taking a close look at how to inspire our community to get fit, have fun, and support local businesses at the same time.  As part of our foundational year round calendar, we will be hosting community “Run-Fest’s” on the 2nd and 4th Saturday’s of each month. These exciting bi-weekly events will pair themed races with wildly fun and educational festivals that will range from our January Red Nose Run paired with our signature Craft Beer and Bourbon Festival to the Jelly Belly Kids Cycle-off and LEGO Imagineer Children’s Festival. Whether you take part in every race or just frequent the festivals, it is our hope you will feel inspired by the community’s level of engagement and creativity.

Each race will serve as a fund and awareness-raising platform for local non-profit organizations, while the festivals will promote corporations and small businesses and performing and visual artistic talent from all corners of our community.  Live music, great food, community heritage education and engagement with the good citizens of Jacksonville are a few of the perks of our festivities. These events are sure to enliven the spirit of Jacksonville and create an inclusive community that values health, happiness, and creativity all year round.”
