Jubilee Community Arts Music Festival
Knoxville, TN 37916
Jubilee Community Arts (JCA) is a regional, community cultural center dedicated to preserving and presenting the traditional arts of the Southern Appalachians. We began operating as an arts presenter in Knoxville in 1969 and received 501(c)3 status in 1980. The organization's stated mission is "to promote, preserve and present the performing arts of the Southern region and to nurture the cultural milieu responsible for the birth and evolution of these and related art forms." JCA serves two overlapping constituencies: 1) rural, predominately European- and African-American communities of East Tennessee, and 2) the more ethnically diverse communities of the Knoxville metropolitan area.
