GREAT VALUE....3 nights camping over August Bank Holiday weekend in Cornwall with great entertainment.
Cornwall's Premier Show'n'Shine
The prestigious Jamboree Show'n'Shine attracts a huge variety of wonderful Dubs for your to admire...From pristine paintwork to outrageous rats, there's sure to be something you wish you were driving home in!
Fantastic selection of bands!
We are very excited with our line up for this year, with a great mix of established favourites and new musical experiences. See the Jamboree music page for more details and links to get a bit of a preview of what you have to look forward to at the show.
Sorry guys, but its true...size does matter! Whilst our massive marquee will no doubt get PRETTY busy in the evenings, you wont feel like you are playing sardines in a two man tent, and even if we don't have wall to wall sunshine all weekend...nothings going to stop the party!
We are absolutely delighted that Tom Dibb, who has just returned from his epic tour across Europe and Australia in his Type 25 campervan Pickle, will be joining us at this years show for our afternoon music sets. We are also very much looking forward to daytime acoustic sets from local artists River & Tyler Cruze.
Lots to do for our junior dubbers!
Most VW shows state that they are 'family friendly' but how many of them boast a marquee specifically catering for their younger visitors? Well the Jamboree does! Whilst we would stress that this is NOT a creche, and you are responsible for your children at all times, this will be the hub for kids entertainment including Marks Ark and his fantastic animals, Dreamcatcher making workshop with Linda, Mrs Marvellous and her 'crafty' ideas as well as kids disco....and there are even rumours that a jamboree mascot may be making his debut at this years show! We are also delighted that Mr Bamboozle will be joining us again and as well as demonstrating his skills making his fantastic balloon animals, he will be holding circus skills workshops over the weekend.
Saturday Fancy Dress Party Night
We never fail to be impressed at the huge amount of effort and creativity some of out Jamboree guests put into creating some wonderful, imaginative (and often downright whacky!) fancy dress costumes and we are delighted that so many of you make the effort to join in, to make our Saturday Fancy Dress party night a riot of colour and fun. This year's theme is Heroes and Villains, so get your thinking caps on guys. Lots of scope for some quick and easy or some completely outrageous costumes choices. We will have a VW photo bus on site so you can get yourself a great little memento of the event.
Discounted entry to Country Fair
On the Sunday 27th Cornwall Young Farmers will be holding their annual Country Fair in the fields adjacent to the Jamboree. Full details of their 2017 have yet to be confirmed but the show normally includes heavy horses, dog agility, craft stalls and clay pigeon shooting and falconry displays. Their admission charges for 2016 were £6 per adult, with under 16's charged at £4, but if you are at the Jamboree, and if you can bear to drag yourselves away from all the lovely dubs and other Jambo entertainment for a while, you can use our 'cross over gate' to visit the Country Fair for the discounted price of just £2 per person.
We have a great range of traders already confirmed to attend this years Jamboree, with more coming on board all the time, so lots of opportunities for a bit of retail therapy of the weekend.
Free Skate Park
We are delighted that the guys from Mount Hawke Skate park will again be joining us at the 2017 Jamboree and showing off some of their moves. All are welcome to use the skate ramps (at their own risk) and FREE OF CHARGE as long as they have the necessary safety gear, so if you fancy spending some time honing your moves, or if you're the parent of the next Tony Hawk be sure to bring along all your kit (including helmet and pads).
A great way for the kids to burn off some of that surplus energy! Day passes available which will keep them happy and save you ££'s over the weekend.
Food Glorious Food
Our esteemed chairman has a bit of a reputation for liking his grub, and he has made sure that both he (and you guys!) have a great choice of excellent caterers to choose from at the Jamboree including breakfast baguettes, seriously good gourmet burgers, delicious pizzas, pasties, donuts, deserts, excellent coffee & hot chocolate and or course ice cream as well as vegetarian, vegan & gluten free options.
Buy or Sell your Pre loved Dub at the Jamboree!!
Yes that's right Reserve a spot in our line up of Dubs for sale. A whole Bank holiday weekend with thousands of potential buyers looking to buy their next pride and joy walking past yours. You will get three days of displaying your Dub to temp a buyer!! And all for a very Modest amount.
Saturday VW Autojumble
Have a root through the oily bits (and shiny bits) and haggle for a bargain.
We introduced silent disco at the 2016 Jamboree and it was a massive success, enabling us to extend the party (particularly on Sunday) despite being fairly close to the nearest village. The headsets we hired were much better than those we had encountered at other shows (which were so worn out they tried to fall of your head as you danced) and most of all this was brilliant fun! So will we be having Silent disco this year....you bet! If you've never tried it...give it a go...you just might like it.
Introducing your hosts for the weekend...
Award winning DJs Kelly Davis & Tim Coleman are highly experienced within the entertainment industry including functions, festivals & sports commentating. Why not come and meet Kelly and Tim at the all new, daytime stage? They will be guiding you through a fun filled weekend, introducing all the live music & summer games along with Dub related interviews and light-hearted chat. As day turns to night, join them inside the marquee for the biggest evening line up that we've ever boasted at Jambo. 3 nights, 6 bands, 2 DJs, silent disco and bar till late.
Jamboree and CVWOC club clothing and other items will be available.
Saturday display of travels with our Dubs
Been anywhere nice with your Dub??? Isle of Wight? Lake District? Wales? Scotland? France or beyond?? Its not a competition and you don't have to have been to the other end of the world. If you have been anywhere you think may be of interest to others and you are willing to put your dub on display for a few hours on Saturday 26th August at the Cornwall VW Jamboree with a some photos and maybe some maps and/or information on your travels, we would love you to be part of our display of 'travels with our dubs'! If you are willing to be a part of this, please let us know.
Choice of camping areas
Prebook Club camping to hang out with your mates. (Club loos available for hire) or book general camping tickets and choose to camp in either our general or quiet camping area on arrival.
We also have a disabled camping area, with disabled loo. Please contact us if you need to camp in this area so we can ensure we allow sufficient space for those who require it.
We know that many of those who attend the show, live in the county and come along because its a great weekend of entertainment (if we do say so ourselves!) but we know that some of you lovely people travel many miles to join us for Jambo, so if you can bear to drag yourself away for an hour or two and wish to explore a little or head to the beach for a quick splash there are many lovely locations within easy reach. We plan to have a self drive cruise route available at the club shop or in case you don't want to unhitch your awning we have made arrangements with a local taxi company who will be available over the weekend.
Stay in Cornwall a little longer!
For anyone wishing to turn their long weekend into a holiday and spend more time in Cornwall either before or after the Jamboree, we have arranged discounted rates at lovely Monkey Tree Holiday Park near Newquay of just £26.20 per pitch per night including hookup for up to 2 adults, 2 children & 1 dog for any August dates and just £13.20 per night in September.

Join the Club!
You don't even have to live in Cornwall to join! We are immensely flattered by the number of people from well beyond the Cornish borders who have chosen to join the CVWOC despite having other VW clubs on their own doorsteps.
There will be an opportunity to renew your membership or, if you are not already a member, join up to be part of CVWOC and enjoy our packed calendar of events, including club camping throughout the year (yes..even January!), subsidised Christmas Parties, and an extra day's camping in our exclusive CVWOC camping area over the Jamboree weekend. The majority of our club events are very well attended and provide an opportunity to make new friends and hang out with a genuinely great gang of dubbers. The club is family friendly and vehicle snobbery doesn't come into it. Whilst we all love our dubs, our club is all about the people and not how much money you spent on your ride.
