61st Mid-Sierra Loggers Jamboree Cancelled

The 61st Annual Loggers Jamboree on July 6 and 7, 2019 is located at the North Fork Recreation Center, pays tribute to the loggers of time past and those still keeping the tradition alive today. Participants in the Jamboree help us appreciate and honor the loggers craft and hard work, while keeping us entertained throughout the competition. 

All proceeds from the Jamboree go into The North Fork Boosters General Fund, to keep local facilities, programs, and events going year after year. In between the competition’s events there are local food vendors and crafts to purchase, and if you feel the need to cool then off then head down to the swimming area for a dip.  

For more information please contact Cathey Thornburg  at 559-676-7766.

These dedicated and hopeful Queens to be will sell as many Loggers Jamboree Raffle tickets to raise money for the North Fork Boosters beginning in March or April at the Loggers Jamboree Kick-Off Dinner/Dance at Town Hall.  Requirements for entry:  Girls ages 13-24 yrs, single, no children. Contact Jennifer Fitzwater at 559-676-7648 for more information.  If you are a previous Loggers Jamboree Queen and have pictures, we would love to put them on the site!

Little Princess and Little Logger 

Our Little Princess and Little Logger are the most adorable part of the Jamboree! Children in the community age 2-4yrs are qualified to sell Loggers Jamboree raffle tickets with their family.  This competition is comparatively new to our others, but with the overwhelming amount of cute kids in the community we had to do something! Contact Jennifer Fitzwater at 559-676-7648 for more information.

Logger Jamboree Parade is on Saturday at 5:00 pm and goes down North Fork’s Main street.

The Woodchopper’s Ball:

Be sure not to miss out, the Ball is a great time for everyone.  On Saturday night visitors and locals come together to dance the night away.  Located at the Rec. Center and starting at 8:30 pm the Wood Chopper’s Ball is meant for anyone who likes foot stompin’ music, hootin’ and hollering!  In North Fork we always have our dancing shoes on!  Come join us and enjoy the music.
