Renaissance Jamboree Returns, Renamed & Relocated

BLOOMSBURG — Feb. 3rd, 2022 — The Renaissance Jamboree festival returns Saturday, April 30th with a new name, Renaissance Jamboree: Detoured to the River, in honor of its 2022 location in Bloomsburg adjacent to the Susquehanna River on Fort McClure Boulevard.

For over 40 years, residents from all over Northeast PA have gathered and celebrated Spring’s return at the annual Renaissance Jamboree in Bloomsburg. The festival, previously held along Main Street, is moving for this year after the East Street paving project made its usual location unavailable.  “After cancelling the festival in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19, the committee felt it was important to engineer its return in 2022.  With Main Street out of the picture due to the East Street paving project, we began looking at alternative locations.  This stretch of Fort McClure Boulevard met our criteria and more – plenty of room for vendor booths, scenic location next to the Susquehanna River and nearby parking.  When John Berger of the Farm in Bloom generously offered his event barn and fields to the festival, we knew we could host a successful event on Fort McClure,” said Cindy Schultz, Renaissance Jamboree committee co-chair.

The Farm in Bloom opened up new opportunities such as having a central location for all children’s activities and a bigger footprint for the music stage.  Highlights include pony rides, inflatable slides, a magician, and some of the area’s favorite local bands.

Festival goers can still expect for the Festival to boast more than 100 arts/crafts vendors and regional non-profit organization booths alongside live music, dance, and special performances. Additionally, food trucks will donate a portion of their sales to local non-profit partners.

Parking will be at the Streater Field parking lot or the west end Bloomsburg Fairgrounds parking lots with a shuttle bus to Fort McClure Boulevard. Visit for more information on the new location and a complete schedule of entertainment and vendors.

The annual Renaissance Jamboree is the largest event co-sponsored by Downtown Bloomsburg Inc., the Columbia Montour Chamber of Commerce, Bloomsburg University, Program Board of Bloomsburg University, the Town of Bloomsburg, and the Renaissance Jamboree Committee.
