Just bring your instrument and some tunes that lend themselves to others joining in…and the rest will follow. At first you may want to just wander around and see what the jammers are doing, if there is a group getting together you can join in by listening or playing. Jamming is about joining in…if the jam is out in the open you're welcome to stop and have a listen.
