Presented by Studio Chane and sponsored in part by Find It In Fondren™

Fondren’s First Thursday, presented by Studio Chane, is a mega platform of artists, musicians, designers and doers. Each month, FFT produces 5,000+ attendees. Meant for all-ages, this family friendly event welcomes all to Fondren – Jackson’s playground for dreamers. Come and stroll the 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.
