Jacksonville Hosts RNC Celebrations

Jacksonville is ready for the spotlight! Coming together as a city to host major events is what we do best and Visit Jacksonville looks forward to welcoming the 2020 Republican National Convention celebration events the week of August 23 to 27.

Through a close partnership with the lodging industry in Northeast Florida, Visit Jacksonville was able to secure a 10,000 hotel room commitment in just 48 hours to convince the RNC that we were eager and capable of hosting this event.

We are excited to show off our great city, beautiful beaches, extensive parks system, historic neighborhoods, world-class public arts and vibrant nightlife to delegates from across the nation and to media across the world. Our residents are ready to get back to work and this convention will help employ thousands of people. We are going to work hard to create a safe, fun environment for everyone to enjoy as they visit Jacksonville for the RNC.
