Local festivals like the Jamboree are only made possible through the hard work of our dedicated volunteers! Although the Jamboree has been cancelled for the 2020 season, we will be looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help make our 2021 10th anniversary festival a success. Please send us an email if you are interested in helping out in the future!
