Watch Jubilee online

A Jubilee like you’ve – literally – never seen before is coming Saturday! 

While we’d love for you to be joining us at the Mann-Simons Site and enjoying an in-person celebration of Black history and culture, the current times have forced us to make a few tweaks in order to continue Columbia’s longest running festival.  

Jubilee promises to still deliver you prominent Black musicians, artists and storytellers – just virtually.  

So how can you watch? 

On your TV 

The event runs from noon-3 p.m. It can be seen on digital television via WACH FOX channel 57.2.  You can also stream the event through the STIRR TV app on your Roku, Apple TV or Fire TV. 

After downloading STIRR to your preferred device, open the app and choose “Columbia” for your preferred city. From there, search for “WACH FOX” and tap the option available ”News powered by WACH" and then click "Live Event." 

On your computer 

A live stream of the event can be accessed via wach.com/live/event.  

On your smartphone  

You can watch Jubilee in the palm of your hand as it will be carried through two free mobile apps. 

  • The WACH FOX mobile app can be downloaded on Apple or Android devices.  

  • The STIRR TV app connects your smartphone to 100 channels, including WACH’s digital channel. After downloading to your preferred device (iPhone, Android), open the app and choose “Columbia” for your preferred city. From there, search for “WACH FOX” and tap the option available under “Live Now.”
