The History Of Jambo Country (previously Jamboree In The Hills)
For over 36 years, over 100,000 fans each year have flocked to the rolling hills of eastern Ohio to take part in the longest running and most popular country music festival in America, Jamboree In The Hills.
This must see 4-Day outdoor festival takes places in Belmont County, Ohio, just a little west of Wheeling, WV. Year after year, thousands make the annual pilgrimage to southern Ohio and turn the peaceful acreage in Morristown, OH into the “Country Music Capital”.
The 4-day party actually starts on the prior Monday with wild contests and activities in the ultimate on-site campground where more than 5000 campers arrive early. The 25 hours of live music features country music legends, current chart toppers and rising stars.
Fans comes from hundreds of miles around – from places in Ohio, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, Michigan, New Your, Indiana, Kentucky, New Jersey and Canada- just to mention a few! The Jamboree fans are the greatest – they are really the other half of the show. That’s why Jamboree In The Hills just isn’t another concert…..It’s The Ultimate Country Music Experience!
Jamboree In The Hills is the Two-Time Winner of the Country Music Associations Festival, Fair or Special Event of the Year Award.
