Since 1997, factory of Maubeuge, France, has been manufacturing Kangoo for the rest of the world, with particular attention paid to the vehicles that go to the Land of the Rising Sun.

Of all the countries that sell Kangoo, Japan is the one that celebrates the car in the most original way. The national craze for this vehicle quickly grew and, in 2009, fans decided to create a gathering to share their passion for the French car with as many people as possible.

And since the 1st edition with some hundreds of participants, it’s now more than 5,000 visitors who come to see the nearly 2,000 Kangoo models on show. Now in its 14th year, the Kangoo Jamboree is the biggest gathering of Renault Kangoo cars in the world.
