Sherwood Spring Fest

Hello Sherwood community members! Sherwood High School is very excited to announce our first annual Spring Fest! Spring Fest is a carnival-style event happening at the Sherwood High School main stadium field on May 13th from 6-8:30 pm. There will be games, food, a talent show, raffle baskets, and attractions. All event booths will be set up on the turf field, not the track itself. All Sherwood community members are invited to attend this event. While admission is free, game tickets and food will be available for purchase. More information will be released soon, and a presale for game tickets will be available for sale online starting next week. Spring fest is a fundraising event; all the money raised will go towards SHS clubs, sports, and Sherwood organizations.


We want to give back to our community and be as inclusive as possible by having free admission, but we need your help! If you are able to support, below is a PayPal link to donate directly. Your generous donations will go towards event vendors, prizes, decorations, and more! This is our first year hosting Spring Fest, and your generosity will help us kick start a new community tradition!
