Cordele- Jesus and Me, or JAM Fest is a gathering of Christian entertainers, musicians and speakers. Last year it drew more than 1,600 people.

This year's line up includes performances by Chris Rice, GRITS, and illusionist Brock Gill. More than 2,000 people are expected to attend this year's JAM Fest.

"Just a fun time to come out and hang out all day. It starts at 11 o'clock Saturday morning and it will go to probably about 10 o'clock that night," says event coordinator Mac Cook.

JAM Fest will be held on the football field of Crisp Academy on Saturday April 23rd. Tickets are $10 and will be sold at the door. For more information about JAM Fest log on to www.jamfestga.com.
