The Big Valley Jamboree takes safety seriously. Give yourself plenty of time because Big Valley has a mandatory bag check prior to entering the festival. It'll take a good 30-45 minutes to fully check into the premises. If you do not bring a bag there is an "express lane" for people who do not have any extra bags. Check out their website to view a list of prohibited items before you attend the events.
Big Valley Jamboree has daily buses transporting people to Camrose from both Edmonton, Red Deer, and Calgary.
