Get ready, Mutants, because Joe Bob Briggs is back with the Third Annual World Drive-In Movie Festival and Jamboree!

This year, the Jamboree is moving to Las Vegas, bringing with it three days of jamboree-ing. As conceived by Joe Bob in 2021, the first two years of the festival were held at the Mahoning Drive-In in Leighton, Pennsylvania and the Malco Summer Drive-In in Memphis. This year’s move to Vegas was initiated by Executive Director, Diana Prince, who fans know as “Darcy the Mail Girl.” Prince works alongside Joe Bob on Shudder series The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs.

Prince said she figured it was time to bring the party further west to “kick things up a notch”, and the festival will be at the West Wind Las Vegas Drive-In. Prince said, “This is a huge drive-in, and that’s enabled us to slash admission prices for fans and have a much bigger party in the city known for its parties.” Guests and film choices will be announced all through the summer, but anyone who purchases their tickets before June 22 will receive an early-bird discount.

The Jamboree will run from October 6 through October 8, and will include movies, music, vendors, sleepovers, music, live onstage events, camping, cast reunions, barbeques, some celebrity guests and walking tours led by none other than Joe Bob Briggs himself.

Join Joe Bob and Darcy in Vegas for an action-packed weekend

On Saturday, Joe Bob and Darcy will be joined by special guests as they present their usual double feature. In keeping with the style of The Last Drive-In, the movies will not be announced in advance.

Sunday is the big day for the Sleepaway Camp 40th Birthday Party, which will feature a cast and crew reunion. After that, there will be a dusk -to-dawn marathon of Sleepaway Camp films one through four.  That should be fun, because Felissa Rose always brings the party!

Attendees will be able to get autographs from the celebrities who will be present, and there are also vendor tents. The signing area and vendor set-up will be on-site this year, so it’s a one-stop shop.
