Bob Marley update

I received a comment asking when Bob Marley was coming to Jackman. I thought I had all of the information for you posted. I am sorry I did not.
He will be performing here on June 28th at 7PM. Go to the Chambers website at [url][/url] for details. Tickets are on sale now as well as at the door on the day of the show. Get ready to LAUGH OUT LOUD ❗

Bob Marely-the Comedian

We are needing your input:!:

The Jackman-Moose River Region Chamber of Commerce is trying to book Bob Marley to come to Jackman for a show. Our options for dates are minimal for this year as well as where we can have this. A Sunday in June may be the only option.

So what I am wondering, is how many of you would you consider coming to the region for a matine or evening show ❓ Would you prefer a matine or evening show ❓ Also, would you stay in town for that night if you could get a discount
❓ Leave us a comment.

You can catch a glimpse of who Bob Marley is on his website at

If and when we learn m,ore about this possibility, I will post more here. Stay tuned.


The Jackman sled dog club is hosting the Moose River Run this weekend. These races are not real easy to watch for spectators but there are places you can hike to to see them in action. OR hang at the clubhouse and talk to the racers while you drink a little cocoa.

For those of you who snowmobile, this trail behind the clubhouse will be closed this weekend due to the races.

Have a great weekend!


The Sans Frontiere Festival is scheduled for this weekend. I think I made an entry about this before but for those of you unfamiliar with it, it is a festival started many years ago between Jackman and St Theophile (?) Quebec. It is an Independence day celebration “”without borders.””

How it works is that on the odd years (like 2007) it is in Jackman and the even years it will be held in St Theophile. It is usually held the 1st weekend of July.

Of course the town of Jackman still has their 4th of July fun and fireworks on the 4th in addition to the festivals.

This year, a bulk of the festivities will be at Johns Campground where there will be booths of crafters and food, live bands, casino night on Saturday, games, a dunk tank, pony rides, horseshoe tournaments, open mike night and of course lots of fun for all.

If you are planning a visit to town this weekend, be sure to check it out.
