Live entertainment will perform on Main Street throughout late afternoon and evening beginning at 4:00 pm and ending the event at 11:00 pm. A variety of food vendors will be present this year for dinner. Plus, crafters will show off their skills and their goods for purchase filling up the rest of Main Street, east of the stop light, right off Highway 81. A kiddie corral with exciting games and inflatables will be set up next to the post office with the purchase of wristbands for $10 & good for the entire evening.
Okarchefest is the one fundraiser for the year put on by the Okarche Educational Foundation (OEF). The OEF is a non-profit organization who directly supports the Okarche Public School system. In 2016 alone, the OEF approved over $14,000 in teacher grants. Thanks to the support of the local and surrounding area communities and generous donations from our sponsors, the OEF hopes to continue and grow the financial support provided to the Okarche Public Schools. Visit our 2017 Sponsors page for a full list of donors and don't forget your registration forms for the the craft vendors, food vendors, Mad Dash and t-shirt order forms.
