Ensley is family. Ensley is home. Ensley is alive… Come see for yourself on Saturday, August 19! Councilor Marcus Lundy presents Summer Jam 2017 – the final installment under the current District 9 leadership – on August 19 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Downtown Ensley (corner of Avenue F and 19th Street). Ensley is experiencing a movement, folks. People in the know can attest that the pulse of this district is strong, and Summer Jam is your chance to feel that heartbeat firsthand.
Featuring a live concert by national recording artists, Summer Jam is an annual block party to celebrate the authentic Ensley. From its historic landmarks and faithful businesses to its iconic jazz roots and homegrown entertainment and art scene, Ensley has a storied past and a bright future. If you believe in this community and are itching to get involved, now is the time! And if you’ve been curious about Ensley’s budding renaissance, come on over and jam!
Summer Jam is free to the public and will include food and street vendors, grand prize giveaways, community spotlights and more. Mark August 19 in your calendar, and stay tuned for more details. And, of course, RSVP to the event on Facebook –CLICK HERE!
This Sunday, a group of volunteers will embark on a façade improvement project at The Shop on 1st Avenue – cleaning and painting the outside of the building.
From the terrazzo floors to the alley mural, the New Ideal building is full of history, and its redevelopment is sure to bring even more vibrancy to the already bustling block it shares with The Pizitz. Here are three reasons we are excited about the New Ideal Lofts project – and we hope it makes you say #YayBham too!
