Jackson is becoming West Tennessee’s outlet for cultural events.  Continually growing, each year offers new and exciting events.  One of my favorites is a performance from the Jackson Symphony Orchestra.  The Christmas event is especially wonderful and always has a full house.  You find the schedule and ticket prices at www.jso.tn.org .  

            You can also take in a ballet from the Ballet Arts of Jackson.  They usually offer a spring event along with the traditional Nutcracker in December. Go to www.balletartsjackson.org for more information.

            The Carl Perkins Civic Center is host to numerous events throughout the year such as concerts, boat shows, Taste of Jackson, Miss Tennessee Scholarship Pageant, and many other fairs.  They annually offer a Bridal Fair, Health Fair and the Rockabilly Festival.  The Ned also offers a venue for many events such as plays from the Jackson Theatre Guild and local high schools. You can visit www.jacksoncentre.com for more information on both of these places.

            Probably the best thing about all the offerings in Jackson is that they are very affordable.
