Presented by Columbus Area Arts Council. Sponsored by JCB.
Started in 1990 as a means of strengthening the community and supporting the arts, JCB NeighborFEST has become a summer favorite in the Columbus Arts District. Provided at no cost to the community, this summer concert series allows the community to gather downtown, listen to regional musical acts, meet old friends, and make new ones in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
JCB NeighborFEST takes place on the first Thursday of June, July, August, and September, 5:30 PM–7:30 PM, in the 300 block of Washington Street. Beverages, including beer and wine, are available for purchase. Bring your lawn chairs and stake out a piece of the fun with your family and friends.
For 2014, we are partnering with Columbus Farmers Market to bring a Thursday night market to Fourth Street during the JCB NeighorFEST concerts. The Thursday night markets run from 5:00 PM until 8:00 PM, allowing attendees to shop for produce and food items either on their way to the concerts or on their way home. To support the Farmers Market, JCB will hand out $50 worth of coupons at each show to be used at the markets.
Thank you to the generous support of our title sponsor, this program is offered at no cost to the community.
I love JCB NeighborFEST and don’t think I’ve missed one in all the time it’s been in existence. I just love seeing neighbors and friends. I love everything to do with music and having it outdoors is a definite PLUS. –Gayle Nay
JCB is proud to be a member of the Columbus community. We are pleased to provide four opportunities each year for the community to gather in our beautiful downtown area, listen to great music, and meet old friends and make new ones. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The positive responses we receive from attendees, thanking us for sponsoring the event, tells us that there is a true value to the involvement of corporate citizens in creating a high quality of life in the Columbus area. –David W.
