BLUEFIELD, VA (WVNS)– The 41st Autumn Jamboree returns in the Town of Bluefield, Virginia on Saturday, September 11, 2021.

Even though fall starts on Wednesday, September 22, this event is held every year on the second Saturday of September. Admission is free to the public.

Bluefield Town Clerk, Kim Hernandez, said this event was not possible last year because of COVID-19. She said a new attraction coming to the jamboree this year is a beer and wine garden for adults 21 and up. Beverage tickets are $20 and feature unlimited beer and wine.
