We make it FUN for spectators of all ages… Our events are always FREE ADMISSION* – no lines, no tickets, no hefty admission fee. Just an open door to come and go as you please! JAMfest Events allow any spectator to photograph and video their team’s performances, and personal cameras of all kinds are welcome. If an athlete has brothers, sisters, cousins or friends coming to watch at JAMfest, we also have a super fun inflatable fun zone that they can play in for FREE!
*Six Flags Thrill JAM is not a free admission event due to the fees that Six Flags imposes in order to enter the theme park.
Do you know this face?? Chances are that if you’ve been in this industry for any time at all that you definitely know! This is our amazing mascot, JAMMY! He attends every event and is always on the lookout for the next Spirit Award winner. Because JAMMY has become the icon of JAMfest, we now also have an awards show in his honor. The JAMMY Awards take place annually at JAMfest Cheer Super Nationals, and aim to recognize and show genuine appreciation for the people in our industry who are using their SPIRIT for more than just a cheer or dance routine.
JAMfest is big on recognizing teams for more than just having the best performance at events too! We give staff-nominated Spirit and Sportsmanship Awards at every session, in addition to judges choice Best Choreography and Most Entertaining Awards. JAMfest is known for throwing out tons of free stuff at every event, so you don’t have to be an athlete to take away a cool souvenir! Look out for frisbees, koozies, squishy balls and more to come flying through the crowd all day long!
