Jam in Jubilee
Jubilee Park - Downtown Abbotsford

July 4, 11, 18, 25 

Jam in Jubilee is a multi-disciplinary, multi-cultural concert series that runs for four Thursday nights each summer in Abbotsford’s Jubilee Park. Each night, a crowd of local culture-lovers enjoys three musical acts, side-stage performances, a vendor market, interactive art installations, workshops, food trucks, craft beer, and an “After Hours” musical showcase.

Above all else, Jam in Jubilee is an opportunity for people in Abbotsford to get out of their houses and hang out. With good friends. With old friends. With people from around the neighbourhood. With community leaders up to interesting and inspiring things. With people from different cultural backgrounds and age groups. With strangers. 
In other words: with “community”, however you define that word.
