Jubilee Community Arts: 51st Jubilee Festival

Category: Festivals & special events, Free event and Music

Friday-Saturday November 20-21 Virtual Jubilee Festival on Facebook

For a full half century we have showcased old-time music, ballads, blues, shape-note singing and other area music in this annual event. The 51st Jubilee Festival originally scheduled for late March will take place online. Planning for our first festival started in the fall of 1969 with the implementation of an Appalachian Craft Festival in the spring of 1970 that included a music stage. In the next few years the traditional music component grew and the event came to be known as Jubilee Festival which Jubilee Community Arts has continued to produce each year. Last year's 50th Jubilee Festival was held during a historic flood, but still filled the Laurel for three days with old and new friends. Though the current pandemic forced us to cancel this year's live event, we cannot let a year pass without the Jubilee Festival.

November 20-21 at the Laurel Theater on Facebook
