North Dakota Chokecherry Festival

Harmon Park

This August event is all about youth and our state fruit, the chokecherry. The fun kicks off on Friday evening with the 1000 Burger Feed in Harmon Park, courtesy of Nemont. Attendees will enjoy live music, great vendor food and fun for the whole family. 

Saturday morning starts with a free pancake breakfast served with chokecherry syrup and a 5k fun run and continues all day with vendors, Kid Zone activities, live entertainment, a car show and more. You will also have the opportunity to try a chokecherry picked just a couple days earlier and purchase items made from chokecherries in our Chokecherry Store. 

Bear Hollow Carvers will be back to create more three dimensional art, to be sold on silent auction during the festival. 

The Ultimate Air Dogs will be returning during the Chokecherry Festival! If your dog is a jumper, consider entering them in an Air Dogs event. The Chokecherry Festival is a regional qualifier event for the Ulitmate Air Games at Purina Farms in September. All mixes and breeds are welcome!
