The Jam in Jubilee Summer Concert Series, a free concert featuring local and regional talent, is slated to run for four Thursday nights in Jubilee Park, beginning on August 4th, 2015. The evenings start at 6 p.m. with an art market, followed by music and entertainment at 7 p.m. The series takes place in Jubilee Park, in downtown Abbotsford in the area of South Fraser Way and McCallum Road. Finally, the “After Dark Series,” a concert at Townhall Public House (33720 South Fraser Way) will follow each evening in the park. The “After Dark” series will feature local electronic, dance, and pop-oriented acts, as well as local DJs.
This year, as with last year, the entire park will be site-licensed, which was unprecedented for Abbotsford events prior to Jam in Jubilee’s 2015 edition. The official brew partner of Jam in Jubilee is the Abbotsford brewery Ravens Brewing. As with last year, those in attendance can walk freely around the park, enjoying local craft beer.
For the past seven years, members of a youth-oriented group called the Jam In Jubilee Committee have donated thousands of hours of their time to planning and executing the festival. The Committee’s focus on procuring the Fraser Valley’s most exciting indie music talent for its main-stage has endeared the community event to its 15-35 year old demographic. The youth-focused yet family-friendly concert series is unique in Abbotsford, where younger music fans are often forced by a lack of performance space to seek out live music experiences in illegal, underground venues.

About the Jam in Jubilee Summer Concert Series
Founded in 2010, Jam in Jubilee (formerly known as Jammin’ in Jubilee) carries on the live music tradition started by the Abbotsford Downtown Business Association (ADBA) in 2004. Jam in Jubilee was adopted by the Jam in Jubilee Committee, a mélange of young people in Abbotsford dedicated to local music, business, culture, and art. The Jam in Jubilee Summer Concert Series stages live music and an arts and crafts market in Abbotsford’s Jubilee Park each Thursday night for four nights in August.
