This mid-winter celebration of arts and culture features the historic landscape of Uptown Jackson.
2019 featured Roy Thomas, the former Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics and co-creator of some of comics’ greatest heroes, including Wolverine. He was raised in Jackson, attended St. Paul Lutheran School, Jackson High School, and Southeast Missouri State University.
Say goodbye to winter and join in with our Piccadilly Style Auction!

Jackson-In-Bloom is a family-oriented event held in early spring.
2019 had Uptown Jackson filled with color. Once again the Jackson High School Plant Sale was a big success, and everyone enjoyed all the activities, food vendors, and merchant specials.
Jackson-In-Bloom also encourages all local businesses and residents to show their pride in the community by planting colorful blooming plants and trees throughout Jackson so we can truly be “Jackson in Bloom”.
