When people want to have a great time while supporting a great cause, they come to the Dawn Farm Jamboree! The Jamboree is an annual family event with free admission and free activities for all ages, including great live music all day by a popular local band, hayrides, animals to pet, pony rides, lots of activities for children, tours of the 64 acre farm, and live and silent auctions and a gift table with a variety of donated goods and services, many at bargain prices! There will also be lots of farm animals to visit, gardens to explore, exhibits of Dawn Farm’s permaculture and sustainable farming initiatives, and food and beverages for sale for a variety of tastes. Our annual award ceremony honors a supporter(s) for his/her/their contributions to Dawn Farm and the recovering community. Dawn Farm welcomes old friends and new friends to join us for an exciting, fun-filled day, and celebrate the tremendous power of hope, recovery and community in the lives of individuals, families, and our entire community.
The Jamboree also provides an opportunity to support a critical community service. Dawn Farm is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization. With residential services, supportive transitional housing, outpatient treatment, sub-acute detoxification and active outreach programs, Dawn Farm provides a continuum of effective services to meet the needs of teens, adults and families in our community. All Jamboree proceeds will support our core value of providing compassionate, competent and hope-filled professional care regardless of ability to pay.
September is designated National Alcohol and Drug Addiction Recovery Month for individuals, families and communities around the country to celebrate recovery. The Jamboree has been our own local celebration of hope, recovery and community since 1973, and Dawn Farm invites the community to join us!
Date: The Sunday following Labor Day in September every year; 1:00 pm to 6:00 pm.
