Chesterfest is a celebration of “the good life” in Chester Nebraska!  After taking a few years off, it was decided to get the party started again in 2016.  We’re now in the 3rd year of our ‘reboot’.

Spearheaded by a small group of younger “Chester-ites”, plans were made, meetings were held and the whole thing just started to snowball.  We’re now well past the organizing stage and putting together a great party!

Check out the schedule to see all the fun we have planned.

All funds raised will be going to produce this year’s event and to establish a fund to finance community improvement projects and  future Chesterfests.

A beer garden will be open throughout Chesterfest to satisfy your thirst on what will be a warm July day.  The concession stand will also be open during the ball tournament with food and drinks.

Saturday will also see an Art Fair where you can view and purchase the work of local artists.

On Saturday, we’ll be hosting Lucky Stradley as she helps you create unique Raku pottery!  You can purchase a piece of pottery add the glaze yourself and it will be fired on site!

The big event is a concert with 3 bands on Saturday evening – with fireworks presented by Kleveland Fireworks and the Chester VFD during the intermission.

Please contact us if you have any questions about the events or would like to lend a hand.
