Celebrating 25 Years of the July Jamboree Auto Show in Cedar City
On Saturday, July 9, 2022, Cedar City’s biggest summer event brought together nearly 15,000 residents, visitors and tourists for the 25th Annual July Jamboree, hosted by the Cedar City Rotary Club.
Downtown Cedar City was filled with classic cars, motorcycles and semi-trucks, vendor booths, live local bands, a food court, a 4:00 p.m. beer and wine garden at 10 p.m. A fun evening was had by all with a plethora of sights, smells, tastes and sounds lining the streets. “We kicked off the festivities this year with a free registration night the night before at Tink’s, a signing sponsor of the July Jamboree,” said David Westwood, Cedar City Rotarian and event chair. ” It all started from there. All in all, it was the best Jamboree so far!
Sue Longson, Rotarian from Cedar City and member of the planning committee agreed with Westwood saying, “As it’s the 25th year, this is our biggest fundraiser and it’s appreciated by all involved! I look forward to this event every year and this year was one for the books.
The Jamboree is organized by the Cedar City Rotary Club with the help of sponsors and volunteers from across the community. Signature sponsors include Tink’s Auto Parts, Cherry Creek Media, Storage General, Cedar City Motor Company, Iron Springs Resort, Southern Utah University and Iron County Today.
