Moab, Rubicon, Tellico, Bloomsburg. Bloomsburg?!? Yeah, we know it sounds weird to include a 4-Wheel Jamboree with the likes of some of the best 'wheeling destinations in the nation. Fact is, though, despite the fact that this event is vastly different than your average trail ride, it is still a must-see facet of 'wheeling. Even though it isn't the biggest Jamboree in the lineup, we consider the trek to Bloomsburg a mandatory pilgrimage each July because it's so much fun.
The Summer 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals celebrated its 18th year in 2005, and it did so in its usual frenetic manner. More than 52,000 spectators and 3,400 participants invaded the Bloomsburg Fairgrounds for three days of everything four-wheel drive. The aftermarket also responded to the call in a big way, resulting in a collection of almost 100 vendors in the Performance Marketplace.
If you want to witness this midsummer madness, plan on attending the 19th Annual Summer 4-Wheel Jamboree Nationals, which will return to Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania, July 7-9, 2006.

As a bonus, the event is close to Paragon Adventure Park and Rausch Creek Off-Road Park, so you can do some 'wheeling afterward.
