Welcome to the home on the web for the Alternative Stage, a free annual homegrown festival and integral part of the Vernonia, Oregon Friendship Jamboree. The jamboree is held the first full weekend of August each year. We provide three days of free music each year thanks to the bands, musicians, and volunteers that donate their time to the event.

Because of the flood and possible health risks associated with it, this year's Alternative Stage was cancelled.
Plans are for a full return in 2009. Anyone who wishes to contribute in any way, please get in touch. Volunteers are needed!
