JACKSONVILLE BEACH, Fla. – The Orange Crush Festival is on in Jacksonville for the three-day festival. It’s set for June 18 to June 20.

It had originally been planned for Jacksonville Beach, but it appears none of the venues in the schedule are in Jacksonville Beach. Most are private clubs in downtown Jacksonville or the Southside of Jacksonville.

There is one beach day planned for Saturday, June 19, for an unspecified location, and another beach day planned at Huguenot Park on Sunday.

Orange Crush has been happening for 15 years now and has been in Tybee Island, Georgia, for the last 10 years. The festival typically attracts thousands.

In 2019 in Tybee Island, according to Jacksonville Beach Police Chief Gene Paul Smith, there were 80 arrests made during the weekend of the Orange Crush festival.
