Join us for a weekend full of fun!
We will be presenting one of the area's most unique cultural events!
The 40th Annual Fall Country Jamboree.
On the first weekend of November Florida History and Folk Culture come ALIVE as we present the 40th Annual Fall Country Jamboree. The Fall Country Jamboree is one of the longest running events in Volusia County.
We are excited to be celebrating our fortieth year of presenting one of the area's most unique and longest running cultural events! Join us the first weekend of November as Florida History and Folk Culture come ALIVE at the 40th Annual Fall Country Jamboree.
This event features living history demonstrations from the late 1800’s and early 1900’s that include blacksmithing, spinning, pottery, weaving, wood working, a sugar cane grinding and boil and much more!
New this year in celebration of our 40th Anniversary we will be presenting the CD release of "Songs of the Settlement" featuring original songs by some of our favorite musicians. This twin pack compilation is a special production of folk music recounting many stories of the Settlement's buildings, people and even our animals. The participating musicians donated their time and talents to produce this unique recording.
The idea was the brainstorm of Susan Jean Grandy who also took the lead in organizing the information, recruiting the songwriters and having the CD produced. The songwriters will be performing their songs on the Barn Stage at the Fall Country Jamboree on Saturday beginning at 4pm and on Sunday beginning at 3pm. The two set CD will be available for purchase at the event for $20. All proceeds from the sale of the CD benefit the Settlement.
Another special for visitors will be the opportunity to commemorate their visit and our 40th anniversary with a professional photo souvenir. Make sure to stop by the Quarters House to have your picture taken with family and friends. The photo booth will be stocked with an assortment of pioneer style props and other themed items to help enhance your photo shoot and make your keepsake one of a kind. A portion of the proceeds of the $10 per 4 x 6 commemorative photo will be donated back to the Settlement.
This event features examples of pioneer living that included blacksmithing, cane grinding and a boil, spinning, pottery, and many more historical demonstrations.
The Handmade Juried Arts and Crafts show features original work from crafters and artists from all over. Local businesses, non-profits and food vendors set up to share their products.
