UPDATED Oct. 1: The Arlington Center for the Arts' Great Northeast Jug Band Festival returned for its second year and is was held Saturday, Oct. 1.

It was to be at the Jason Russell House lawn, but, because of inclement weather forecast, the event took place indoors and at 27 Maple St. in the main hall of the Arlington Community Center. 

Touted as New England’s only jug-band festival, it highlighted song traditions from the 1920s and 1930s as well as the modern evolution of this good-time music.

This event is free and open to the public.

Advance registration is strongly encouraged.Jug Band Festival

For those audience members who might like to come to the event in style, organizers have produced an event T-shirt, which customers can order on-demand ahead of time to support ACA and its efforts to continue to present free events and programs.
