Jamboree Hall and Museum Renovation

Donation protected

The Wheeling Jamboree, once a National & Regional focal point of country music, plays an iconic role in American music history. Along with the Grand Ol' Opry and the Louisiana Hayride, the Jamboree was considered vital to growing the country music fanbase and was a spring board to international fame for many artists. (2004 Jamboree Documentary)
Following many heartbreaking setbacks that have harmed our once prestigious role in validating the careers of the nation's top performers, the Jamboree has recently secured an opportunity to return to our former status as a hotbed for country music talent. We currently operate a radio station and broadcast the live show every Saturday night. The purpose of this campaign is to purchase and remodel a permanent home for the famed Wheeling Jamboree. This is the last major obstacle we must overcome in order to provide stability for the stage show, as well as create a Jamboree museum and permanent radio studio. The past 10 years have seen The Wheeling Jamboree move between numerous venues, making it impossible to establish a consistent crowd.
Please help us to revitalize The Wheeling Jamboree in a way that, not only the show deserves, but that honors the importance of country music from its rich history to its modern day influence on the State of West Virginia, The City of Wheeling.  America's Country Music Culture (and beyond). Our team of volunteers and leadership have poured plenty of passion and resources into this project for many years. The performers and technicians have donated their time and talents as their way of saying they still believe in the importance of The Wheeling Jamboree.
