It's one of the best-kept secrets in Northwestern Ontario and the word is out. If you want to experience the excitement of first class live musical entertainment close to home, you don’t want to miss on the Annual Geraldton Music Jamboree. This three-night event is set for the long weekend of August at MacLeod Provincial Park in Geraldton

In 1994, a small group of Park campers proposed the idea of a fund-raising musical event to be held in MacLeod Provincial Park after the Town of Geraldton received notice that the Park was to be closed. This group would later organize an event to help preserve this beautiful natural resource and a way of life valued by so many residents. Any profits from the event would go towards the park’s operations revenue to offset its operating costs. In 1995, the first Jamboree was born. The Geraldton Music Jamboree Committee organizes this event. They are a group of volunteers who are dedicated to maintaining this event and MacLeod Provincial Park. Committee Members donate countless hours meeting throughout the year and working to produce a successful Jamboree. The scale of the Jamboree event requires a huge undertaking in terms of volunteer commitment. Approximately 100 additional volunteers enjoy their responsibilities and come back year after year to help out during the event.


More and more visitors from inside and outside the district are planning their vacations around this event. With up to 5000 people in attendance last year, The Geraldton Music Jamboree is establishing itself on the entertainment map and becoming a tourism booster for the Region. In a stunning open-air setting right on the beautiful shoreline of Kenogamisis Lake, the scene is tailor-made for an outdoor concert. Finishing touches include a new band shell and stage. There are a number of food and beverage concession stands, so people can stay and enjoy the entire evening without ever having to leave the site. Rain or Shine, the show goes on. Don't worry weather shelters are at the ready! When the sun is setting and the stage lights come up, you know you're in for a great time.
