904 Day: Annual grassroots campaign returns on September 4

August 25, 2022

We at Wingard are passionate about the First Coast – from the shores of Fernandina Beach to the historic sites of St. Augustine, and from the skyscrapers of Downtown Jacksonville to the ever-growing counties surrounding the Bold City. Therefore, it goes without saying how passionate we are about 904 Day.

A little bit of history and background…

The annual grassroots campaign celebrates all things local to Northeast Florida. Residents and visitors alike are encouraged every year to join in on the 904 Day celebration by making a plan to support local businesses, organizations, destinations and causes on September 4.

In order to amplify 2022’s 904 Day, Wingard created and produced a guide to help businesses and residents promote the event. The digital guide, which includes downloadable graphics, ideas for how to celebrate 904 Day and sample social media posts, is available to the entire community.

We’re proud to build on the collective effort to amplify the concept, alongside our friends, client partners, and collaborators from WJCT Public Media, Downtown Vision, Inc., the JAX Chamber, Visit Jacksonville, and the First Coast Hispanic Chamber of Commerce. Additional partners who have committed to 904 Day in 2022 include Build Up Downtown, the Downtown Investment Authority, and the Jax Daily Record.

As reported in the Jax Daily Record’s article, 904 Day: ‘Small businesses are the backbone of the economy,’ more than 70% of Northeast Florida businesses have between two and nine employees — including the proprietor. In the spirit of 904 Day, we invite you to make a plan to support your favorite small businesses on September 4.

Have a happy 904 Day, Duval!

Let’s turn your idea into realized potential.
