Jacob Barker Music Festival underway in downtown Jackson

JACKSON, Tenn. — The third annual Jacob Barker Music Festival kicked off Friday evening in downtown Jackson.

The two-day festival brings attendees from all over West Tennessee. All proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

The festival features live music and food trucks.

The concert is scheduled to run through Saturday night, with all proceeds from the show going to benefit Make-a-Wish. Each year, the festival raises money to make a child’s wish come true.

The festival continues Saturday at 1 p-m at The Amp in downtown Jackson.
The Jacob Barker Music Festival began in 2015 after 3-year-old Barker was diagnosed with Retinoblastoma. Three years later, Barker is now a cancer-free 6-year-old.
