Thanks to Michael Logsdon for this great shot of the Jubilee audience on Saturday afternoon. It was a great day down on the Ohio River & we have the best audience anywhere. Thanks so much to the fabulous musicians, our sponsors & vendors and our crew of volunteers, friends and family who all work SO hard to pull this all together. We couldn’t do it without you all ❤️. And if you didn’t get a shirt or print because we SOLD OUT so early, hang-tight. We’ll have more of both coming soon. #jugband #jugbandjubilee ... See MoreSee Less

It's Jubilee day!! Looking like a beautiful, busy day down on the river.
- There is free parking all up and down River Road and there will be additional parking in a field just East of the amphitheater for $7. The Jubilee also has a couple of golf carts that will be out looking for folks who need a ride.
- We will have water stations set up so that you can refill your water bottles.
- No coolers, no outside alcohol.
