The Pine Barrens Jamboree!

(Photos taken in 2007)

The Pine Barrens Jamboree is sponsored by the Ocean County Board of Chosen Freeholders through its Department of Parks and Recreation. It is FREE; in fact shuttle buses are available to take visitors back and forth from parking areas at the O.C. Voc-Tech School and if needed, Ocean Twp. Elementary School. This is the perfect venue for a tast of "Piney" culture, from the day-long music provided through the Pinelands Cultural Society (Albert Hall) to the many artists, crafters, cooks, farmers and more that display and sell their product at this great event. Also, many non-profit groups offer a myriad of educational materials about the NJ Pine Barrens.

The Wells Mills County Park Nature Center is in the background.


Displays and the bandstand are located under large tents supplied by Ocean County.

Then there is the music - all day long! Many of the "regulars" from Albert Music Hall/Pinelands Cultural Society were out to play.

The "Jammin' Tent" is a delight to watch!

Nikki Giberson brought her handmade baskets and jams.

There is something for everyone!

There are lots of handmade items at the Jamboree!

Erin of Headley Farm kept busy packing up freshly harvested cranberries for sale!

The fall harvest is evident here, with apples, pumpkins, cornstalks and much more.

The NJ Forest Fire Service has a large presence at the Jamboree.

"Jersey Devil" mugs...

...and statues!
