Hours: Sargent Fair and Chokecherry Jamboree will be held in conjunction with Sargent Alumni. Festivities will start on Friday, May 29th, 2015.

“Back in the Day”

The Chokecherry Jamboree was an event separate to the fair in its inception. However, the community’s desire for one larger festival quickly merged the two events. Along with the carnival the festival features Mud Drags, a Pit Spitting Contest, a Parade, entertainment, BBQ's & pancake feeds, and the Little Miss Chokecherry Pageant. The first contest was among HS girls. Interest in the contest became stronger among younger girls and the Little Miss Chokecherry Pageant is now open to 1st and 2nd grade girls.
