Smoked Country Jam is a 3-day, family-friendly event bringing together performers from all branches of the bluegrass tree.

Whether the music is traditional or progressive, Americana, old time or Roots, all are shared on the stage with one another. The festival showcases the past, present and future of this American-made music. Each year, lineups of national and regional performers bring over 40 hours of music to two stages, overseen by our two sound companies, GP Audio (Quiet Oaks Stage) and Upstage Productions (PA Wilds Stage). The event features a 3-day Lupus Auction benefiting the Lupus Foundation of PA. There is a full schedule of bluegrass workshops, children's activities, a beautiful vendor midway, and the Pennsylvania Heritage Songwriting Contest. The festival is both 4-wheeler and pet friendly.

Rustic camping is included with all full-festival tickets. Camping with hookups is an additional cost, run through Quiet Oaks Campground. If you are interested in reserving a site with electric and water hookups, contact Quiet Oaks at +1 (570) 923 2386 or visit their website.

Teresa's Story

Since Teresa Kodish was diagnosed with Lupus in 2002, Smoked Country Jam has been committed to making a difference. Through our three day Lupus Auction, we have raised over $18,000 for the Lupus Foundation of Pennsylvania, a non-profit organization that is fighting to find a cure once and for all.
