THE DETAILS
This summer, join us on the banks of the beautiful & shady Finley River as we host the inaugural Finley River Days, an aspect of River Jam, at the Sertoma Duck Race Festival, June 21-22, 2019. We are gathering to celebrate local water through hands-on, interactive activities the help from water loving organizational booths.

2019 PARTNERS
Are you looking for River Jam? Due to the need to be more mission focused with our limited staff, River Jam has changed forms. We are joining together with the Sertoma Duck Race Festival and Bass Pro Shops Outdoor Days to bring you this fun and educational event about our local waters and appreciation of outdoor activities. A portion of Outdoor Days activity tickets will directly benefit JRBP's ongoing non-profit water quality mission here in the Ozarks!

WHY OZARK?
We are returning at Finley River Park in Ozark Missouri to celebrate the beauty and necessity of clean local waterways in the James River watershed and beyond.
