We have wrapped up yet another successful jamboree last October 2015. The weather really cooperated! The official attendance is 1,704. This was our third largest jamboree, with the jamborees in 2014 a little bit bigger. We had a great bunch of riders who attended the event. Thank you to all those who attended and supported us at this our 48th Jamboree!

The 2016 Jamborees are planned for June 10, 11 & 12, October 7, 8 & 9.

The NOHVA Jamborees are the largest single off road event in Nebraska.  Many riders stay and campout for the three day Jamboree weekend.   

We offer multiple events on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  Our family oriented events include barrel races for the kids, sand drag races, timed races on a course through a forest, a poker run and an ATV and UTV sled pulling contest.   

The purpose of the Jamboree is to serve as a fund raiser to operate NOHVA and its chapters across Nebraska.  Some of the proceeds of the event are donated to the Genoa Rescue Squad.  The jamboree helps provide volunteer and financial support for the Headworks OHV Park near Genoa.  NOHVA is a non-profit corporation.  Our number one goal is to preserve existing public trails and parks to ride in Nebraska.  We work to preserve existing places to ride in Nebraska, protect ATV, dirtbike and UTV owners from burdensome regulations, promote safe and responsible family oriented ATV, dirtbike and UTV recreation and work to educate ATV, dirtbike and UTV riders.   

A Jamboree Event pass is $35 per adult for non-members.  Family event non-member passes are $60 for two adults plus $20 per adult 16 years and older.  NOHVA member event passes are $20 per adult.  Riders under 13 qualify for FREE admission and must be accompanied by a parent or guardian the entire weekend.  All those who attend the Jamboree must obtain an event pass.  If you are not willing to provide an ID and sign a release, please plan another time to visit the riding area.   Expected attendance is estimated to be 1500+ riders.
