Gus Macker – The Original 3-on-3 Basketball Festival of Family Fun!

Experience Jackson, Downtown Development Authority and Anchor Initiative are proud to bring Gus Macker back to Jackson County for the first time in nearly 20 years!  Jackson County is the place to explore outdoors, enjoy great food, discover the past, and to experience something unique as The Cascades.  Hoops will take place throughout the streets of Downtown Jackson on July 14th and 15th with opening festivities beginning on the 13th.   While in town, hit up on the great food and shops, as many local favorites are in walking distance from the ball courts.

 

In the return to Jackson, registered officials will be working on every court, ensuring that quality basketball is being played and maintaining a family-friendly atmosphere.  Since this is an event for all ages, we encourage that you bring your family and friends to town to compete at every level, or simply sit back and enjoy the entertainment that Gus Macker and the City of Jackson have to offer.

 

 

Presented by: Experience Jackson, Downtown Development Authority, Jack

Additional Website Sponsors: Art Moehn Chevrolet, CP Federal Credit Union, Spring Arbor University, Pro DJ’s

 

We have a few others at the website level pending but will let you know!  Also, here are some old time Jackson photos to use, as well as a draft map.
