GLEN JEAN, WV (AP) — The permanent home of the National Scout Jamboree will hold a four-day outdoor festival for the public in September.

WVVA-TV reports the Adventure On! Freedom Festival will take place Sept. 10 to 13 at the 14,000-acre Summit Bechtel Reserve in southern West Virginia.

Among the events will be a free concert featuring the band Lonestar on Sept. 11 for first responders, active duty or retired military and law enforcement officers on the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

The event also will feature motor bike and electric bike racing, swimming, fishing and ziplines. Local vendors will be allowed to sell their wares. Tickets can be purchased in advance.
