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.

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 future Chesterfests.

Chesterfest will start July 8th, 2016 with the first games of the Men’s Softball Tournament (which will continue through Saturday).  The celebration really gets going on Saturday July 9th with an Art Fair, Talent Show, Kids’ Zone Play Area and more.  We’ll have lots of food available through the concession stand during the ball tournament and a great pulled pork dinner on Saturday night!

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 by Dustin Evans and Good Times on Saturday evening – with fireworks presented during the intermission.
