Find It All in Jacksonville Beach

The Blues, Jazz, Rock’n Roll, the Pops, and the Movies!

Jacksonville Beach continues its tradition as the entertainment center of Northeast Florida. Spring and Summer are festival and concert season in this city by the sea. Fans of the blues, jazz, classical music, and movies are just a few of the many who are drawn to the nearly weekly events in Jacksonville Beach that offer family entertainment.

Beginning in March, Jacksonville Beach residents and visitors have an opportunity to enjoy some of the best national and regional bands, all with the beautiful Atlantic Ocean serving as the backdrop. Festivals also feature a variety of arts, crafts and children's activities.


Sunday, November 26, 2017 - 4:00pm to Monday, January 1, 2018 - 9:00pm

Location:  Latham Plaza and SeaWalk Pavilion

Jacksonville Beach Deck The Chairs is an annual lighted sculptural exhibit using the iconic chairs of The American Red Cross Life Saving Corps. Forty chairs are sponsored by local business and decorated by regional artists. The exhibit is on display in downtown Jacksonville Beach at the Seawalk Pavilion and Latham Plaza from the end of November and the entire month of December.

Founded to benefit our nation’s only remaining Volunteer Life Saving Corps, Jax Beach Deck The Chairs (JBDTC) is a one-of-a-kind holiday event. JBDTC brings community together, shares a joyful spirit of diverse creativity, and provides important economic benefit to the region during off-season.

JBDTC is proud to support the Volunteer Life Saving Corps of Jacksonville Beach. All net proceeds from JBDTC go to help supplement funding provided by the American Red Cross and the City of Jacksonville Beach. Funds are needed for training and outreach programs, and maintenance of its oceanfront facility. 

Event and performance hours vary so please check out the schedule at www.dtc.org.
