The Town and the City Festival

THE TOWN AND THE CITY FESTIVAL is a 2-day music and arts festival that will take place in various event spaces, bars, cafes, and galleries throughout downtown Lowell, Massachusetts on Friday October 19 and Saturday October 20, 2018. The festival celebrates the spirit of Jack Kerouac in direct and indirect ways.  It is named after Kerouac's earliest novel which was primarily set in this historic mill city.  The Town and The City Festival is inspired by the creativity and exploration for which the author was so famously known and will present a diverse mix of musical genres and artistic disciplines to inspire discovery and to celebrate a love of life.
