SARGENT - The Sargent Fair is almost as old as Sargent but actually started as a harvest celebration. As crops and harvests grew largerâ€¦ the warm autumns seemed to grow shorter. This provoked the Fairâ€™s change in schedule from an autumn to a summer event.
In the 1980s, where â€śout of the ordinaryâ€ť became normal, the celebration needed an identity of itâ€™s own, thus the worlds first and only Chokecherry Jamboree was born. Now you may find more Chokecherry events, but Sargentâ€™s was the first!
