Are you ready for some football?!?! Join us in the park three weeks from today when we join forces with @jaxfoodtruckfoodcourt to present a Tailgate Takeover in the Park before the Jags / Falcons game. Jacksonville’s favorite food trucks, cold beer, music by Paul Ivey and the Souls of Joy AND a pair of free tickets for the best dressed Jags fan - don’t miss it!

It’s a sea of barbecue eating bluegrass fans in Hemming Park tonight for our first ever Bluegrass, Beer and Barbecue event. What an amazing night! Thanks, Jax, for coming out to party with us. #bluegrass #barbecue #beer #urbanpark #hemmingpark #dtjax #visitjax #cojparks #summerinthecity
It’s almost time for Bluegrass, Beer and Barbecue! Here’s some helpful information for the day: The event is FREE but please support our vendors by purchasing food, goods and beverages. Most accept cash or credit. Bands start at 5; bar and VIP will open at 4:30. Early arrival is fine, but please remember that vendors will be unloading from 3 to 4. The VIP tickets are SOLD OUT! We will provide 100+ seats but encourage you to bring a folding chair. Free on-street parking is available throughout downtown and walking a few blocks is good for you! Public transportation, bikes and UBER are great options, too. Well behaved dogs on leash are welcome! We’ll even have treats and a water bowl for them near the bar. Kids love bluegrass and we have a kids zone with activities by @mygymjacksonville Jacksonville from 5 to 8:30. A few rules to help keep everyone (including @jaxsheriff ) happy: No coolers in the park. No alcohol unless purchased from Friends of Hemming Park. No smoking near food trucks, seating areas, or kids zone. If you find something, bring it to our VIP check-in table. If you lose something, look for it there! If you need help with anything at all, ask our ambassadors (wearing green Hemming Park shirts) or security. We are here to make sure you have a great day. This event is produced and all costs are paid by Friends of Hemming Park (FOHP). If you enjoy yourself, please consider becoming a member of FOHP. You’ll receive perks throughout the year and invitations to special member events. See us at the entrance to our VIP tent for more information. We can’t wait to see you all tonight!

Today four new associates from the Mayor’s Youth At Work Partnership joined Friends of Hemming Park. They will each gain new skills and experiences working as park ambassadors and in office administration, marketing and event coordination. Please help us welcome high school students and new young professionals Terius, Destiny, Ronesha and Javiree to the Hemming Park team. When you see them in the park, greet them with a smile and let them know what a great job they’re doing! #mayorsyouthemploymentprogram #hemmingpark #intership #workprogram #youthatwork #youngpeople #interns #skillsforlife #workprogram
