Camrose annual event set to bid an early welcome to summer

April 7, 2018 by  

Late this spring, Camrose will be the location for a festival that will feature music, fun and friendship while supporting a variety of local not-for-profit groups.

The annual Jaywalker’s Jamboree will be bringing together dozens of different performers and entertainers, with everything from singers to bands and dance clubs taking part. The kids can enjoy the amusement rides, and there will also be train rides throughout the festival grounds.

The foodies in the crowd may wish to head to the area where vendors will be set up. They will be serving up treats that run from freshly made doughnuts to corn on the cob, and Mexican, Norwegian, Asian and Ukrainian-style dishes will all be available. Each morning of the event, Candler Art Gallery’s south side will host a pancake breakfast, and visitors to the festival can enjoy their choice of snacks or even a full meal.

A variety of local service groups have planned to get involved in the fun by offering raffles and prize draws, and the monies raised will support Camrose community initiatives. Print shops can be counted upon to supply any printed materials needed for this type of large event.

The Jaywalker’s Jamboree will run from June 1 until 3, and it will be its 61st year. Further details can be found on the Camrose Chamber of Commerce’s website.
