We are excited to bring back Cigar Box Guitar Festival for its 13th year at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment as part of our Concerts on the Dock concert series. Join us for the longest running cigar box guitar festival in the world, celebrating all aspects of cigar box guitar culture with a variety of fun and engaging activities and performances. We honor the makers, musicians, and fans of these unique, historic instruments with a two day event full of live music, engaging demonstrations and hands on workshops, folk art, vendors, food trucks, and more. For the 13th Annual Cigar Box Guitar Festival, Lowe Mill A&E will expand with a juried art market featuring 40 artists with mediums including painting, pottery, jewelry fiber and more. The Art Market will be open 5pm to 9pm on Friday and from noon to 7pm on Saturday. From folk to fine, there’s something for every taste and budget.

Concerts on the Dock started as a small gathering of music lovers back in 2008, and has since grown into an institution in the Huntsville music scene. This free, family friendly series is all about creating a laid back atmosphere for friends of Lowe Mill A&E to enjoy original content and interesting new acts, Friday nights during the Spring and Fall. Bring chairs, picnics, friends, and pets on a leash and join us under the water tower!
