If your weekend agenda does not include a trip to Madison & Hall, you should probably change them.  This Saturday brings the Grand Opening of the LINC Development Center at 1167 Madison Ave SE and we are celebrating with the first annual Rock the Block Street Jam & Fair.  The ribbon cutting will take place at 11:30am and the day will be filled with live music and entertainment, local food, and a whole street full off community resources!

The newly renovated, LEED-Certified building at 1167 Madison Ave SE hosts :

•  Urban LINC Co-Work Space and Business Incubation - offering training, access to conference rooms, office equipment, WiFi, and video-conferencing for local entrepreneurs and business professionals.
•  LINC Opportunity Center - providing families with services in employment placement and career improvement, financial education and coaching, and public benefits access through a unique partnership of LINC, Salvation Army, Hope Network.
•  LINC offices, a local restaurant, and other community resources.

Over 50 local organizations and food vendors will host booths lining Madison Ave with information about community resources, offering free health screenings, manicures & haircuts. There will be sights, sounds and tastes for everyone with an array of delicious local food from Sandmanns, Urban Pizza, Southern Fish Fry, Jamaican Dave’s, Wing Heaven, Duthler’s and GrillMasters. The main stage right outside the LINC Development Center will host a variety of performances and whether you are an actual child or a child at heart, there will be inflatables, obstacle courses and cash cubes for everyone to enjoy.

Everyone is welcome. Join us in celebration of the Southtown community!
