What is FRGJ?

The Frenchman River Gospel Jam has been a staple of the Saskatchewan Southwest for over two decades, providing amazing entertainment while offering the opportunity to hear the salvation story of Jesus Christ. FRGJ is a non-profit organization that strives to provide a community event that appeals to all age groups through a variety of family-friendly music and entertainment. We've brought together some of the most recognized bands in country music:
Oak Ridge Boys, Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers, George Canyon, Jason Blaine, and Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, to name a few.
Turn the event into a family vacation with the discounted weekend pass or stop by for one or two shows of your choice. Not only do we offer you great ticket prices but Saturday festival events and music are FREE.


In our humble beginnings, the jamboree was held at Valley View Bible Camp, south of Shaunavon, SK. We provided a weekend of free music, fellowship, and festivities to all ages, bringing in numerous local groups and groups from across Canada and the United States. Over the last 4 years the FRGJ has moved locations to the Crescent Point Wickenheiser Centre in Shaunavon. The board had a vision to make the FRGJ accessible to more people and have the ability to start bringing in some bigger headliners. Year after year, FRGJ continues to attract some of Country Music’s Icons and Rising Stars.

  • There is only one God who is infinitely perfect and exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • In Jesus Christ – the true God and true man.
  • The Holy Spirit is a divine person, not just some cosmic force, and is sent to live inside us – to guide, teach, and empower the believer.
  • The Old and New Testament are without error as originally given and were inspired by God.
  • All nature was originally created by God out of nothing.
  • Salvation has been provided through Jesus Christ for all people.
  • Those who are God’s family make up the church; Jesus Christ is the head of the church.
  • The Lord Jesus Christ is coming again.
