Join us in celebrating the 68th Annual Apple Pie Jamboree

 July 17, 18 & 19, 2015
The parade begins!

The Apple Pie Jamboree is an annual event that brings together the best of our community to raise money for local students, clubs and community groups. In our 68th year, the Apple Pie Jamboree is better than ever with even more events, fun, friends and family! Included in the fun-filled Jamboree weekend are Jet Ski races on the Columbia, the Ray Stanley Memorial Bass Tournament, and Samaritan Riders Benefit. These events operate independently, not involved in APJ fundraising, administration, or philanthropy.

We would like to thank everyone who joined us for the Jamboree in 2014. Whether you were an organizer, committee member, sponsor, participant, or a visitor, we could not have had such a successful event without you!

Come and spend the weekend in Pateros. Camping is available at Alta Lake State Park, Lightning Pine RV, Whistlin' Pine Ranch and many more beautiful areas surrounding Pateros. For more camping information click here.
