Opinion. By Mike Archer. One of the bits of magic of summer in Abbotsford is the weekly get together at Jubilee Park called Jame in Jubilee.
A combination of live music, art, exhibits and community fun have managed to offer the ability for residents to congregate and enjoy an evening of entertainment and fun.
Jam in Jubilee provides an incredibly important venue for local bands and musicians to be able show their stuff, practice their craft and do what they do best – entertain. Without the weekly summer festival, local musicians and artists have precious few opportunities to perform and residents have very few opportunities to learn about them or enjoy their work.
Jam in Jubilee organizers and sponsors deserve a gigantic Thank You for both the artistic community in Abbotsford and the Fraser Valley and from the community at large who are able to enjoy the weekly gathering each summer.

From Jam in Jubilee
Founded in 2010, Jam in Jubilee (formerly known as Jammin’ in Jubilee) carries on the live music tradition started by Abbotsford Downtown Business Association (ADBA) in 2004. Jam in Jubilee was adopted by Atangard Community Project Society, a melange of young people in Abbotsford dedicated to local music, culture, and art, and has grown to include committee members from various walks of life and community involvement. We are proud to serve the Fraser Valley, including Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Mission, and Langley, all in Beautiful British Columbia, Canada.
