Jug Band Battles

Jug bands exist and evolve to the present day through the country and all over the world.

Since 1980s Minneapolis, Minnesota has hosted The Battle of the Jug Bands. Nearly 35 jug bands battle for the "Coveted Hollywood Waffle Iron" trophy. This event is on every Sunday after the Super Bowl. This event is very popular and jug band fans bring their own food and drinks to share and enjoy the competition.

In October 2004 The National Jug Band Jubilee is held in Kentucky.

The festivals  in California are carried out outdoors every summer from July to September and are popular with locals.

A gilded sausage-stuffer is given to the winner of the jug band battle in Chicago, which happens every fall and last whole day.
