When in Jackson…


What is there to do in Mississippi’s largest metropolitan area?

As a new resident of Jackson, MS, I had no knowledge of the area, her towns, events, traditions, or people. What a joy it has been so far finding out what I have!

It turns out – there’s quite a lot to do.

Did you know that you could simply search Google for “Jackson events” and you’ll get a list of activities in the area? Several businesses and organizations affiliated with Jackson and surrounding communities have websites with pages dedicated to telling what is coming up and how you can attend. The Jackson Free Press has an event list high in quantity, with many events to choose from every day. Additionally, if you live in one of the many surrounding cities, organizations like Clinton Main Street (for Clinton, MS) often hold events and advertise them on social media. I even have their calendar synchronized with my phone, which makes knowing what is happening both accessible and practical.

Professional Staffing Group had the chance to visit the Mississippi State Fair a few weeks ago, partaking in yet another event that both draws the state together and is rich with history. 2017 was the Fair’s 158th year, and more than 700,000 individuals took part in the food, fun, and entertainment. Pictures of our excursion can be found on our Facebook page.

Whether your passion is art or the archives, culture or chorus, there truly never is a dull moment in the City with Soul.
