"The Town and The City Festival 's first 2 years were met with great enthusiasm from music fans, performers, the venues and the community" " said festival producer, Chris Porter, a Lowell native. "After the pandemic forced a hiatus for a couple of years, 2022's event was a resounding demonstration that this Festival stands alongside the other signature music events in the area like the Lowell Folk Festival and the Lowell Summer Music Series. It's a wonderful way to showcase what downtown Lowell has to offer and feature many performers from the area and beyond."
