Chuck Wagon

Fundraiser Festival

For 81 years this festival has been a part of Sam Hughes Elementary history!  During this festival we bring out our western wear and enjoy the company of friends, family and neighbors.  The PTA strives to keep this tradition thriving and would love for you to attend!


The entire Sam Hughes community is invited to a fun filled afternoon full of games, prizes, food, attractions and live entertainment.  In addition, we host a huge silent auction inside of Tallmadge Hall full of great deals!  Will you come enjoy your afternoon while supporting Sam Hughes Elementary School?

There is no entry fee!  Anyone can come and watch the entertainment as well as participate in the silent auction!  All food, games and attractions require tickets to partake in.  Tickets are for sale the day of the event for $1 a piece.
