904 Day started last year as a grassroots initiative in Jacksonville, Florida, to promote small businesses and local organizations. The day is celebrated on Sept. 4 - the day the city was founded and its area code is 904. Its sponsors include the Downtown Vision Inc., JAX Chamber, and Build Up Downtown.
The event focuses on local businesses and their unique quality of life. The day is also a day to highlight the unique qualities of Northeast Florida and the 904 area code. There are 2.7 million small businesses in Florida, and 99.8% of them are locally owned and operated. On 904 Day, local businesses celebrate their unique qualities and encourage customers to shop local.
There are many events planned for 904 Day, ranging from concerts to art shows. There will be discounts offered by participating businesses for 904 Day attendees. Businesses may also hold raffles and draw a winner on Sept. 4 to award a prize to one lucky winner. This event is a great opportunity for business owners to highlight their local businesses and celebrate the thriving Jacksonville community.
