The 60th Annual


Loggers Jamboree

July 6th & 7th 2019


The North Fork Boosters Club are organizing the 60th Annual Loggers Jamboree!  This event, annually 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 through out 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.
