Now in its sixth year, the Esk Camp and Jam is continuing its support for the Esk Show next weekend with a full schedule of entertainment.

For the last three years, funds raised from the weekend event have supported the free rides at the Esk Show.

Camp and Jam organiser Jocelyn Frost said the event was like a ‘security’ for the Show.

“Since we introduced free rides for the children, the feedback from the town has been phenomenal because it has meant that we get far more people at the show than we have had in years,” Mrs Frost said.

“It’s lifted the whole agricultural show.

“I just love seeing the Show Society financially benefit from it, and I enjoy seeing people enjoying it.”

Mrs Frost said the Esk Camp and Jam had plenty of live entertainment in store over March 15 to 17, including plenty of opportunities for walk-up artists to shine.

The setlist includes Never Two Late, Brief Divide, ChrisC, Jaq Daniel, The Zephyr Project, and Ringer.

“From 9:30am till about 5pm on Saturday and Sunday we have walk up artists, and those walk up artists are so talented,” Mrs Frost said.

“Over the years, some of the walk-up artists I’ve hired the following year because they were so good.”

Mrs Frost said the event was always looking for volunteers, and anyone interested could contact her on 0414 490 270
