The Florida Country Superfest music festival is this weekend in Downtown Jacksonville.

On Saturday and Sunday, Kenny Chesney, Keith Urban and Zac Brown Band along with seven other artists and bands will take the stage at EverBank Field.

Thousands of visitors are expected to travel to Jacksonville from outside the region for the event.

With so many people gathering in the same place, Leonard Propper with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says the city will be ready.

“The parking lot is open earlier. There’s a lot of tailgating going on,” said Propper.

“There should be plenty of parking in the sports complex, as well as the parking garages and some of the private lots will be open as well,” he said.

Propper says attendees should be mindful of parking too far from EverBank Field, as the festival is expected to last until well after dark.

Tickets to the Florida Country Superfest are available at TicketMaster.com,  FloridaCountrySuperfest.com or JaxEvents.com.
