Jerry Jam began on the first anniversary of Jerry’s passing in August of 1996. A small group of friends gathered together to celebrate the life of Jerry Garcia, along with the music and vibe associated with the Grateful Dead.

Since that first gathering of about thirty friends, Jerry Jam has grown to an annual attendance of over 1400 kind souls and several bands playing throughout the weekend.

Jerry Jam has survived all these years because of a small group of committed, compassionate friends. After holding The Jam for five consecutive years at The Barn – a small venue with limited parking and close neighbors – it was decided that maybe The Jam had run it’s course.

Then the magic of community rose up.

Generous friends with larger and more secluded properties offered their space to keep the ‘vibe’ alive. Thanks to this community, Jerry Jam is now entering it’s sixteenth year, and with even more bands, it looks to be the best Jam yet!

Many people have said their experience at Jerry Jam has been:

“…the best time of my life”

“Truly magical”

“Un#$%*ing believable!”

We believe this is due to the beautiful setting and the relatively small size of the gathering.

Jerry Jam is a not-for-profit event. Over the last several years The Jam has raised money to benefit local causes, including the Ryan Ross Fund and Copper Cannon. Kindness is at the heart of our event, and we apply that belief not only to one another, but to Mother Earth and her environment as well.

The mission of Jerry Jam is to promote an experience of a truly pure, positive, higher level of consciousness… a consciousness where the music is the drug and the like-minded people are the driving force of energy to create the experience.

We look forward to seeing you there!
