A nonprofit performing arts festival, the Britt Festivals are held in the Britt Gardens and Amphitheater in downtown Jacksonville. The Britt is considered one of the premier performing arts festivals in the Northwest and each year attracts high profile and local artists alike to perform in the natural beauty that surrounds the garden. The main mission of the Britt Institute is "to invite audiences and artists to celebrate the joy of live performances, the power of community, and the magic of the Britt Experience."
Dating back to the 1850's, the Jacksonville Historic cemetery is one of the oldest cemeteries in the state of Oregon. Well kept by local volunteers, its a great way to get a walk through the past.
