Jackson Chamber issued the following announcement on Aug. 9.
The Jackson International Food and Art Festival was born from a series of community meetings organized by Mayor Jerry Gist in 2013. Two community representatives in particular, Dr. Sandra Dee and Eduardo Morales, thought the it would be beneficial for Jackson’s foreign-born citizens to share their history, art and culture with their fellow Jacksonians. Dr. Dee and Mr. Morales agreed to co-chair the event and began recruiting like-minded community members to help organize, fund and host an international party in downtown Jackson!
