Jamboree set at Jubilee Park for the city of Cave Junction’s 75th birthday!

Get ready to celebrate with your family and bring a picnic basket to the Jubilee Jamboree set for Saturday, June 10 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Jubilee Park.
Main Street Cave Junction and the Illinois Valley Chamber of Commerce have joined to plan the 75th birthday party for the city of Cave Junction. This free family-friendly event at Jubilee Park will have live music, games and of course, birthday cake – cupcake style.
Put on your dancing shoes because local music artists like Rosie Wittman, Dawna Crocker, Jarrett Moore and Oddspells will be present to show some love for the city.
Beside lots of groovy tunes, there will be fun games for the kiddos and adult games to boot! Plan to display your game skills and your lucky rabbit with carnival games, cornhole, a pie-eating contest and chicken poop bingo.
Along with the live music and games there will be some storytellers present to talk about the history of Cave Junction.
Main Street Cave Junction President Amy Lusson has been working hard to plan this fun party. “I can’t wait to play chicken poop bingo, it is going to be so funny to watch,” said Lusson with a laugh. “Everyone is welcome!”
Although there will be free birthday cupcakes provided, you are encouraged to bring your own blanket or chairs along with lunch or snacks. Remember, if you bring your dog it must be crowd-friendly and on a leash.
Fun history facts: Cave Junction, originally known as Cave City, was established in 1926 on land donated by Elwood Hussey. The city of Cave Junction adopted their first charter in 1946 and became incorporated in 1948. The 1950 U.S. Census counted 283 residents. In approximately 100 years, this site has been transformed from unexplored wilderness to the second largest of two cities in Josephine County.
So come show your community pride and save the date for this fun-filled celebration.
