We wait all year for this!! Big Valley Jamboree is HERE! While you may have had your tix for a while – every year it stills seems to sneak up on us and have us all freaking out about what to wear and what to pack!
Well fear no more – here are a few pointers to get you on your way…… 😉
THINGS YOU SHOULD PACK:
These things are god sends! They clean up literally everything – and leave you smelling so fresh. Go for the big pack – you’ll need em! If you cant make it to the shower – have a 10 baby wipe shower. It will work in a pinch!
Also when you spill a shot ( of juiceeee!) on your leg – you can go through your day NOT sticky! I guarantee you will find uses for these silly things all over.
DEET BUG SPRAY
Just get the deet. Yeah the mosquitoes aren’t that bad in the city – but they are out there! GET DEET.
No need to spend a fortune – you can get a cute pair for under $25 at stores like Ardene . But bring them. I promise you – you will need them at some point this weekend. Even if the forecast says sunshine – somehow there is mud .
If you can get an appointment – get an instant tan. Everything looks better when you have a bit of a glow in my opinion! Your photos looks better, even the filters work better haha. Plus your feet don’t look AS dirty!
I go to Lauren at Glitz Spray Tan – but truth be told – she may be pretty booked up. But she is the best – give her a shout and maybe she can fit you in!

JERGENS NATURAL GLOW
If you’re not into getting a spray tan – get this on NOW! Wear it every day and by BVJ kickoff and all throughout you will be a sun tanned goddess! Love this stuff – it works! Plus because you’re building a tan – if you accidently miss a spot it’s not that noticeable. 🙂
The best dry shampoo by far out there is Dove Invigorating. It’s about $5 a bottle and one bottle should last you the weekend. It smells great, it makes your hair look way more voluminous and best of all – you will look like you came out of a hotel NOT A tent!
*Also serves as an air freshener in a pinch!
WHAT TO WEAR
It’s a COUNTRY festival – the bigger the better darling! If they sparkle in the sun – even better! Have fun with the style. Fringe is your friend, glitter is your friend and colour is your friend. Plus if you have messy hair and dirt on your face ( don’t ask) – earrings are distracting!
It may seem weird to get a manicure when essentially you’re camping. BUT nice nails (with color on them!!!!) are the best way to hide dirty nails. Which you get at BVJ no matter what you do hahaha. Plus they look super cute in all the photos you will be taking!!
Its like the uniform of big valley – and they look great on anyone! Pair it with a plaid shirt and cowboy boots – you’re perfect!
A CUTE DRESS
NOT a tight dress haha but think fresh off the farm , flowy, and NOT WHITE! It will get trashed. But a jean dress; even overalls would work perfect…..love this look from Jillian Harris

And lastly – the ONE ESSENTIAL : BOOTS!
They MUST be comfy! Or you have to drink enough to not feel your feet – which is never a smart idea haha.
Tall or short , black or brown – or pink! They all work at BVJ!
But be aware – chances are they will get dirty – but they’re boots- they are supposed to!
I hope this helps you out!!! If you’ve never been to BVJ and you still have questions about what to pack or wear – you can always drop me a line at Jack@cisnfm.com .
It’s going to be such a great weekend – make sure you stop by the CISN Sea-Can in the concert bowl and say hello! xoxox Jacks
