The Smithville Fiddlers’ Jamboree & Crafts Festival Board of Directors voted to adapt the usual disbursement of prizes and giveaways for 2021. A raffle ticket will be offered for $1 to give attendees the chance to win great prizes offered by various sponsors and local businesses. There is no limit to the number of tickets an individual may purchase. Two grand prizes include a banjo by Deering Banjos and a Martin Guitar provided by Jamboree President Sam Stout with United Country Real Estate.
“In years past, we have sold the Jamboree tabloid program for $1 with a tear out raffle ticket inside, but this year we have decided to give out the programs for free while allowing anyone that wants to participate in the raffle to do so by purchasing a separate ticket next to the Jamboree stage,” said Shan Stout Director of Marketing for the Jamboree, “We want everyone to enjoy the historical features and photos that we have included in this year’s 50th anniversary program tabloid, so it was decided to provide them free to the public while offering the raffle as a separate ticket purchase. The raffle helps to support the Jamboree in a small, fun way while giving attendees a chance to win a chance at amazing prizes. It’s a fun tradition that we plan to continue year after year, and a great way for our emcees to showcase what our businesses have to offer.”
