Imagine a backyard party, but one with awesome jam bands that lasts two days. Now, head to the Gathering at Chaffee’s in Girard to make your vision a reality.

The Erie Country tradition enters its 34th rendition of the two-day music festival, with jam masters Aqueous and Eric Brewer and Friends headlining Friday’s festivities and Spiritual Rez and Jimkata starring on Saturday, alongside a dozen other bands ready to entertain. In addition to providing a killer atmosphere, the Gathering will also help benefit the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and The Bradley H. Foulk Children’s Advocacy Center, adding some good karma to your mini vacation right in Erie’s backyard. — Alex Bieler
