Bit of History
The history of the Sturgeon fairs go back to the beginnings of Sturgeon. Throughout the years, the dates of the fair have varied to accommodate the weather, farming, and other area fairs. Many groups and individuals have organized the fairs throughout the years. Just prior to becoming the Sturgeon Summerfest, Mike & Brenda Sutton organized downtown festivals to help raise funds for individuals with cancer and for the Honor Flight ministry - which fly's WWII Veterans to Washington to tour the WWII memorial.
In 2010 the Sturgeon Chamber of Commerce organized the first "Sturgeon Summerfest" and voted to hold it the weekend of the first day of summer (as a summer celebration). During the first Summerfest there were a few vendors and one bounce house along with some games and activities. In 2011 inflatable activities were added along with 10 craft booths and other activities such as: Sand Volleyball Tourney, go-cart racing, Horse Pull, Fish Fry, BarBQ and more. In 2012 - an all day FREE Concert and stage was added, along with a Car Show, horse shoe tournament, 20+ craft vendors, and a variety of food vendors.
In 2013 we plan to continue growing the Summerfest: Carnival Rides, Archery Shoot, Fireman Competition, BarBQ & Cooking Competitions, Talent Show, xTREME 5k Run, and more.
The Sturgeon Summerfest is only made possible through volunteers who give of their time, sponsors who faithfully give of their financial support, the city of sturgeon and fairgrounds board for their continued support, and the community of Sturgeon and it's guest who come out each year and enjoy the Sturgeon Summerfest!
We sincerely thank you all for your support!The Sturgeon Chamber of Commerce & the Sturgeon Summerfest Committee
