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