Fondren’s First Thursday

fftAn always first Thursday “mega platform for thinkers, doers and dreamers.”

This Studio Chane presented event, formerly Fondren After 5, is a mega platform of artists, musicians, designers, dreamers and doers. Each month, fft produces 5,000 – 8,000+ attendees and is growing! This all-age, family friendly event welcomes all to Fondren – Jackson’s playground for dreamers. Come and stroll our historic business district and enjoy great music, local art, gallery openings, live mural walls, local organizations on display, and be a part of the creative interaction such as d.i.y. tee shirt printing. Offering a kid friendly event supported by our local churches, we encourage you to please bring your dogs as well.

Indulge in the best restaurants and drink spaces that Jackson has to offer and enjoy performances by local schools featuring art, theater and music. Yes, there’s more live music than any other event in the state! We look forward to you visiting our growing event – all happening in the middle of the downtown Fondren historic district, listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Interested vendors, musicians or other organizations… contact FFT@CHANE.COM for additional information and applications. Welcomed by Fondren Renaissance, whose mission is to empower others to build a better Fondren!
