About Sandborn Fall Festival
Sandborn Fall Festival was formally known to many locals as the Black Creek Festival and in years past had been coordinated through many different organizations including the Park Board, The Sandborn Lions Club, and more. In 2017, the Sandborn Volunteer Fire Department initiated bringing back the annual event but under the new name "Sandborn Fall Festival". The event was put on by the Sandborn Volunteer Fire Department through 2021 (except for 2020 due to COVID 19 regulations), but unfortunately in 2022, they no longer had the manpower for such an undertaking.
In 2023, the Town of Sandborn Town Council reached out to local members of the community to create the event again utilizing a new community based non-profit "Friends of Sandborn Fall Festival" to pull it all together.
A percentage of the proceeds from the annual event go back to the Sandborn Park Board while the remaining proceeds will be used to help continue this tradition for years to come. We hope that you enjoy your time here in our little town!
Thank you all for your generous contributions!
