2021 presented significant challenges to holding the Renaissance Jamboree.
The committee was already looking at having to move the festival's location for 2021 due to a PENNDOT project on nearby East street which would have made Main Street and Market Street unavailable for the festival. Paired with the continued concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, the Renaissance Jamboree Committee felt it appropriate to cancel the 2021 event.
We look forward to seeing everyone in 2022!
A completely outdoor event, Renaissance Jamboree features hundreds of craft vendors and delicious food from non-profit organizations in Columbia, Montour, and lower Luzerne counties. Enjoy FREE entertainment, kiddie rides, and games. Free parking with shuttle service will be available from the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds and the Geisinger Bloomsburg Hospital parking lots. For the safety and enjoyment of all attendees, please leave your pets at home.
Commercial food vendors affiliated with a Non-Profit should register using the Non-Profit Application.
Crafters must be able to demonstrate that products are substantially hand-made.
