We’re very excited to have you joining us at Joe Bob’s Drive-In Jamboree this year in beautiful Memphis, Tennessee!
Please see below for more information on checking in at the event, our schedules for both the Convention and the Drive-In Shows, as well as additional information on our Seating Area at the Drive-In.
Ticket holders will need to present their ticket each time they enter a venue. Attendees will be given different colored wristbands for each day both at the convention and at the Drive-In shows.
In addition, VIP ticket holders will also be given special lanyards to wear throughout the event. These are VERY IMPORTANT as they will grant you access to all of our VIP-specific events, such as the buffet at the convention. You will receive your lanyard when you check in for the first time at either the Drive-In or the Convention.
VIPs can pick up their t-shirts and posters from the table in the Last Drive-In room at the Convention at the Memphis Hilton. Please note that you will NOT be able to pick up your shirt/poster at the Malco Drive-In.
PLEASE NOTE: All ticket holders that would like to sit in our designated seating area at the Drive-In will need to bring their own seating (Lawn Chairs Recommended!) to the Malco Drive-In each night, including VIPs!

Joe Bob Briggs hosts a fast-and-furious two hours as he uses over 200 clips and stills to review the history of rednecks in America as told through the classics of both grindhouse and mainstream movies.
You will learn:
* The identity of the first redneck in history.
* The precise date the first redneck arrived in America.
* The most sacred redneck cinematic moments.
* How Thunder Road, the Whiskey Rebellion, the tight cutoffs worn by Claudia Jennings in Gator Bait, illegal Coors beer, and the Cannonball Baker Sea-to-Shining-Sea Memorial Trophy Dash combined to inspire the greatest movie in the history of the world.
* Why the redneck is the scariest monster in all of film history, with visual evidence.
* The existential difference between Forrest Gump and Sling Blade.
* The reason God loves rednecks….and dozens of other historical facts that you didn’t realize you needed until Joe Bob deposited them in the rear lobe of your brain.
Meet-and-greets with Joe Bob before and after the show!

Watch the 1982 theatrical trailer of “Halloween III: Season of the Witch”
starring Tom Atkins and Stacey Nelkin
Opening night, July 8th 2022 is the “Halloween III Throwdown” with the cast and crew of the 1982 film showing up for a 40th anniversary reunion and confronting festival founder Joe Bob Briggs over his long standing opposition to the only movie in the Halloween franchise that departs from the iconic Michael Myers narrative.
The Friday-night event will consist of a screening of the movie, interrupted several times for commentary and debate, followed by a one-hour Q&A with all involved “to determine, once and for all, whether Halloween III belongs in the franchise.” The issue will be settled by an audience vote.
The Saturday night program on July 9th will feature two cult movies presented in the format of The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs, and in keeping with the show’s tradition, guests and titles will not be announced in advance.
Sunday night, July 10, brings The World Drive-In Movie Festival to the Malco Summer Drive-In honoring filmmakers who work outside the traditional financing systems of Los Angeles, New York and London.
Joe Bob will introduce the ten winning films and will present the filmmakers with the coveted Hubbie Award, engraved on a Chevy hubcap.
Submissions for the World Drive-In Movie Festival open at 1pm Eastern on April 11, 2022 and close at 11:59pm Eastern on May 11, 2022.
