The 56th Annual


Loggers Jamboree will be held

July 4th & 5th 2015


In the Winter of 2014/2015, the North Fork Boosters Club are organizing the 56th 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.


Tickets for Sundays Main event, when the Professionals compete, can be purchased from the  Logger’s Jamboree Queen, Little Princess and Little Logger Contestants prior to the event.  Tickets are $2 if purchased from the contestants or $5 at the gate.  These pre-sale tickets are good for Sundays event only. There are no pre-sale tickets for Saturday’s event, when the amateurs compete. Tickets for Saturday can be purchased at the gate for $5.
