Two days of music from the very best string bands from the Pacific Northwest playing at the cozy and historic Prosperity Grange Hall in Olympia, Washington. The Steamboat Stringband Jamboree is being brought to you by a collaboration of two longstanding Olympia bands (The Oly Mountain Boys and The Pine Hearts) and their friends at the nonprofit Outdoor Arts and Recreation. The vision for the Steamboat Stringband Jamboree is to showcase fantastic Northwest bands while simultaneously providing a fun, entertaining, and inspiring place to gather and celebrate bluegrass and other folk music, and the greater Northwest region! There will be local beer (and other drinks), local food, and other crafts for sale at the event. Folks are encouraged to come ready to jam at the impromptu jam circles that are sure to pop up around the campfires. You can find more information, including the schedule, the full lineup of bands, and the links to pre-purchase your tickets online at

Jamboree weekend is here! This year's event is bigger and better than ever!

New layout!

We've outgrown the Prosperity Grange backyard, but we aren't moving far. This year's stage will be located in the grassy field of the Tin Cup Golf driving range next door! Bring your blankets and spread out in the grass!



Festival artists the Oly Mountain Boys, Thunder and Rain, and Ky Burt will all be hosting workshops on Friday at noon!

And a ton of great bands all weekend!

Your favorite duo The Lowest Pair closes out Thursday night! Don't miss our set Friday night! Festival partners The Pine Hearts perform Saturday! And headlining is Songs from the Road Band all the way from North Carolina! Plus too many other great bands to mention!
