The event is open to the public. Admission is $7 for adults and children ages 12 and under may attend free.
The jamboree brings together local talent of the St. John Valley, across the state, and Canada for an afternoon of impromptu performances. Rising stars, as well as seasoned veterans, take their turn. The event is an opportunity for people to strut their stuff whether they play an instrument, sing, or dance.
Last year’s event drew more than 50 entertainers. The jamboree is very successful and attendance continues to grow with peoples’ feet stomping and cameras rolling.
