The Creator Showcase will take place on Wednesday, April 6 from noon to 10 p.m. in Downtown Jacksonville, along Laura Street, at the heart of the First Wednesday Spark Walk, which spans from Hemming Park to The Jacksonville Landing.

Due to high ridership during One Spark, bicycles and double wide baby strollers will not be permitted on the trains. We apologize for the inconvenience.
