Welcome to the Southland Jamboree!

The Southland Jamboree in Lexington, Kentucky is a FREE bluegrass music concert series that happens weekly during the summer in south Lexington. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and join us for some bluegrass music! Bring your instrument and join in the jam after the show.

2018 season:  As our fans know, our sponsorships for the 2017 were down significantly and, while we had a reserve from prior years and finished out the season okay, the prior funding methods aren’t sustainable for the future. We are looking at other funding, especially one or more large donors to ease our finances for the 2018 season.  We are cautiously optimistic that the 2018 season will happen, but nothing is definite yet. If you value the music and our free Jamboree summer concerts, please consider a donation. If you know of a business or other entity interested in a larger donation for sponsorship, See the Friends page or contact us. 

Southland Jamboree was at MoonDance Amphitheatre in Beaumont Centre for the 2017 season,
Mondays at 7:00 pm. See the Schedule of concerts.
Please consider donating as a business sponsor or individual friends, and/or volunteering.  See the Friends page for more details. 


2017 Season

For the 2017 season, Southland Jamboree will continue at the MoonDance at Midnight Pass Amphitheatre in Beaumont Centre. We have excellent permanent stage and sound facilities,  increased audience space and parking, while still not far away from our original space behind Collins Bowling on Southland Drive.

    • Southland Jamboree will continue to be on Monday evenings at 7:00 pm beginning on Memorial Day (May 29) and continuing through the summer until Labor Day (September 4).
