Default NE- Sargent Fair and Chokecherry Jamboree

Sargent Fair and Chokecherry Jamboree:
SARGENTNEBRASKACITIZENS.COM: Fairs restart 60th Anniversary and What's a chokecherry?

Quote:
Sargent, Nebraska's Sargent Fair and Chokecherry Jamboree is coming up, the weekend after Memorial Day. If you've got the time, come to Sargent for our fair and festival starting Sunday June 6, 2010 and running through June 8, 2010. Sargent, Nebraska's Fair and Chokecherry Jamboree is fun in the best small town tradition, and it's the only known Chokecherry Jamboree!

Some of the events that you can find are a carnival midway, the Chokecherry Pit Spitting Contest, a parade down Main Street, a volleyball game, local entertainment only Sargent can provide, BBQ and the Little Miss Chokecherry Pageant for our young ladies. For more information and a schedule of events, check out the City webpage.
The event has passed. It's an annual event that takes place the weekend after Memorial Day.

Thanks to watchdog for including a link to Wildlife Gardeners' chokecherry recipes in the very informative article.

The 1980’s gave us many things to remember with a smile: The Rubiks Cube- Parachute Pants – Max Headroom and George Strait – Once again our little fair needed to make some changes. In a decade where “out of the ordinary” became normal our celebration needed an identity of it’s own thus the worlds first and only Chokecherry Jamboree was born. Now you may find more Chokecherry events but we were the first! 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.
