Watch & Listen: 52nd Jubilee Festival

When: Friday, March 19th, 6:30pm - March 20th, 10pm

Where: Online 

For over a half century the Jubille Festival has showcased old-time music, ballads, blues, shape-note singing and other area music in this annual event. The 52nd Jubilee Festival, like last year's 51st Jubilee Festival, will take place online. 
Planning for their 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. The 50th Jubilee Festival was held during a historic flood, but still filled the Laurel for three days with old and new friends. Though the ongoing pandemic forces them to cancel live events, they cannot let a year pass without the Jubilee Festival.
