jdaylogoThe excitement around Jackson Day is growing so fast, we had to buy a bigger tent.

That means we have 10 open tables and we are extending ticket sales until the seats are filled! So there’s still room for you to join us — under the big tent — on Bicentennial Mall in Nashville for our annual Jackson Day Dinner this Saturday, Oct. 1. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Click here to purchase tickets at JacksonDay.org.

This year we are celebrating who we are as Democrats by paying tribute to the legacy of Governor Ned McWherter.

We’re thrilled to announce Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, House Leader Craig Fitzhugh and former Commissioner of Economic Development Matt Kisber will be joining us for the tribute.

They’ll be sharing the stage with the outstanding John Seigenthaler and our keynote speaker Governor Ted Strickland of Ohio.

With an incredible Drew Westen message workshop during the day and a comedy filled After Party co-hosted by the Tennessee Young Democrats — this will be the big tent party of the year.

Jackson Day is just three days away and our new, bigger tent is filling fast. So don’t wait to get your tickets.

More exciting news about our Jackson Day Dinner October 1st

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

We’re thrilled to announce the addition of former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland to next weekend’s Jackson Day Dinner.

Strickland is a lifelong advocate for working and middle class families. He has recently been at the forefront of the grassroots fight to defeat Ohio’s Senate Bill 5, a measure that — similar to the Republican attacks on Tennessee teachers — would severely limit the collective bargaining rights of schoolteachers, police officers and firefighters.

Governor Strickland’s remarks add to an already great program featuring a salute and celebration of our state’s 46th Governor entitled, “The People’s Governor: A Tribute to Ned McWherter.”

The tribute features an address from the legendary John Seigenthaler.

We’re just days away…If you haven’t already purchased tickets to the Party’s “who’s who” event of the year, now’s the time to do so!

The Jackson Day Dinner will be held Saturday, October 1 at the Bicentennial Mall in Nashville.  Doors open at 6 p.m. with the program starting at 7:30 p.m.

Happy Labor Day

Monday, September 5th, 2011

As we celebrate Labor Day this weekend, the Tennessee Democratic Party is also preparing for Jackson Day 2011.

This year’s Jackson Day will be a historic celebration of the life and accomplishments of Governor Ned McWherter.

Please join us in Nashville on Oct. 1st as we salute a governor who went to work for working families.

Click here to purchase tickets.

Labor Day also reminds us that this has been a difficult year for working families with extreme, corporate-backed attacks against workers taking place around the country — and right here in Tennessee. These attacks on the American middle class show us exactly how important our work is.

We’re fighting for all Tennesseans. Our victories — like the 40-hour work week and the creation of a broad middle-class — have improved the quality of life for all Americans. And our shared prosperity has always been opposed by the power elite.

That’s why we want you at Jackson Day.

Folks like Ned McWherter, who understood the value of hard work, pulled together and set our state down a different path. Now it’s time for us to pull together and carry on that legacy.

Click here to purchase tickets for Jackson Day 2011. Your ticket purchase will provide crucial support to candidates who believe in creating opportunity for everyone.

We are standing up to billionaires and politicians who attacked Tennessee teachers and union workers. We are fighting for investments in our children’s futures, our schools, and our roads and bridges. We are fighting for good American jobs, wages and benefits that should come with a hard day’s work.

And we need you to join us Oct. 1 in Nashville to keep this movement growing. Click here to purchase tickets.

Thank you for everything you do and have a happy Labor Day.
