In the competitive landscape of country music festivals, where massive megafestivals dazzle with star-studded lineups and exotic locales, some seek a more intimate and enjoyable experience. Enter the Jackalope Jamboree in historic Pendleton, OR—a refreshing alternative that is gaining prominence as a beloved independent country music festival.

Unlike sprawling megafestivals with three simultaneous stages and crowds of 30,000 clamoring for essentials like food and shade, the Jackalope Jamboree offers a more manageable and intimate setting. Held from June 27-29, 2024, this year’s event featured top names in independent country such as Charley Crockett, Kaitlin Butts, and Silverada, alongside Red Dirt legends like Jason Boland, The Randy Rogers Band, and Cody Canada. The festival also highlighted local Oregon talent, providing ample opportunities for new discoveries.

Spread across three stages with non-overlapping performances and minimal queues, attendees enjoyed the luxury of a covered grandstand at Pendleton’s Happy Valley facility, ensuring excellent views and comfortable shade throughout. The weather cooperated perfectly, enhancing the overall experience.

The 2024 Jackalope Jamboree was marked by memorable performances and notable collaborations. Notably, Silverada took the stage at 9:07 p.m. local time, just minutes after releasing their new self-titled album, captivating the audience with a spirited set that included tracks from their latest record.
