JEFFERSONVILLE, NY — After skipping several years of celebrations, the Village of Jeffersonville is bringing back its popular event: the Jeff Jamboree, which will return on Saturday, August 4 at Lion’s Field, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The event is free and will have over 55 unique vendors including specialty foods like Belgian waffles, fresh baked pretzels and homemade ice tea, plus many delicious foods from Jeff’s Main Street restaurants. Also, Real Maple Syrup & Cotton Candy from Diehl’s Farm.

The event is designed to be fun for the whole family; bring the kids for free activities all day. There will be three huge inflatables, a petting zoo sponsored by Jeff Bank and The Towne Gift Shoppe, balloon animals, win or lose games with prizes, and play firehats to be given out to the first 200 kids.

Other events include a felting demo throughout the day by Imagine Alpacas and a live beehive on display from Bob Davis. Ghost enthusiasts will enjoy meeting members of Catskill Paranormal, who will be on hand for a Q&A. History buffs can stop by the Sullivan County Historical Society’s display, set up at the town hall directly across from the field.

There will be live music by The Latimer Brothers Band, a dance routine by the Janice Center and pony rides with Bridle Hill Farm. Try your luck at the 50/50 Raffle plus a drawing to win a dinner at Welsh Cabin and two lawn seats for Kelly Clarkson and The Fray.

The Jamboree is sponsored by the Jeffersonville Area Chamber of Commerce. Visit www.jeffersonvilleny.com or www.facebook.com/jeffersonvillejamboree.
