Sargent is the Chokecherry Capital of Nebraska. Our Chokecherry Jamboree is complete with Pit Spittin’ contests and held each June in connection with the close-by Comstock Windmill Festival.
Sargent, named in 1879, is nestled along the beautiful spring-fed Middle Loup River.
Between 1927 &1974 Sargent and Oscar’s Palladium was the dancing hot-spot of central Nebraska when it hosted such greats as Guy Lombardo, Lawrence Welk, the Dorsey Brothers, and other, world-famous, ‘big bands’. It’s still the place to be during Nebraska’s JUNK JAUNT®.
