West Jackson Community Development Corporation (West Jackson CDC) will bring the sounds and swing of the historical Lynch Street District back as it presents the 22nd Annual Lynch Street Cultural Arts Festival on April 26 - 27, 2013.  "At one point and time, Lynch Street served Jackson, Mississippi as one the most thriving, progressive business districts in the State.  This festival gives us an opportunity to celebrate the heritage and history of this community," says Linda H. Carter, CEO/Executive Director of West Jackson CDC, "Our organization is very proud to be part of its continued history." 


The West Jackson CDC will host the Festival kick off Friday, April 26, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. with a Cabaret Style Banquet held at the W.M. Stringer Grand Lodge Masonic Temple 1072 John R. Lynch Street, featuring the award winning "Motown Contours".  Tickets to the Banquet are $50 each or $500 for a table of 10. The Lynch Street Cultural Arts Festival is held each year to celebrate the rich cultural heritage of the Lynch Street community.

On Saturday, April 27th, from 12:00 Noon until dark, the festivities continue with a free street (from Dalton to Rose) festival featuring a Community Health Fair; a Children's Village; and more of "The Motown Contours",  NBC Band, Pat Brown, Rick Lawson (The Baby of the Blues), High Frequency and other R&B, gospel, and blues artists; food vendors; and much, much more. 


West Jackson CDC is a community-based, private non-profit organization which provides housing, economic development, social services, and leadership development to the West Jackson area.  Again, Saturday's Street festival is free to the public and all ages are invited to attend.
