Event: Moonshine Jamboree is a public event in Fallout 76, introduced in the Test Your Metal update. It has a recommended player level of 50. It can become a mutated public event with the Freezing, Reflective, or Resilient mutations, as of the Mutation Invasion update.

Quick walkthrough[]

  • Talk to Moonshiner Ned.

Defend 3 Stills from dangerous creatures, and kill some Gulpers for their venom so I can fill a bathtub and make moonshine. This sounds about right for a jamboree!
Award Reputation


Completing the event will reward the player some Raider reputation.

The rewards are additive and will stack depending on what objectives are completed. For collecting the minimum amount of 30 venom, the base rewards will be given. If you collect 60 venom, you'll get both the basic and the extra venom rewards lists. Then you will additionally receive one of the 3 possible distiller rewards lists, depending on how many distillers survive. And finally, if you collect the extra venom and all 3 distillers survive, you will receive the final rewards list in addition to everything previously awarded.

Behind the scenes[]

During early testing in the Public Test Server, this event had the same quest icon/animation as Tea Time and Project Beanstalk. It was later replaced with a unique icon/animation.


  • [Platforms needed] If the barn distiller is destroyed but the others survive, an additional 150 XP will be rewarded instead of 100. The 150 XP bonus was supposed to be rewarded for keeping all 3 distillers intact but was added to the wrong rewards condition. [verification overdue]
  • [Platforms needed] Turning in 60 venom all at once can cause the deposit to not register and can fail the event. [verification overdue]
