The May Fete program showcases the talents of school age children from across McPherson County and is held on Wednesday evening in Lakeside Park (high school in case of rain) and on Thursday evening at McPherson High School. On both nights, the evening begins at 5:45 pm with the McPherson High School Jazz Band, followed by May Fete at 7:00 pm.
Join us both nights, as each night will have different performers!

Winding the May Pole

Fifth, sixth and seventh grade girls in McPherson County are invited to wind the May Pole before the May Fete performances. This is a great way to participate in the All Schools Day activities.

To participate, they be willing to attend all practices and both May Fete performances. Also, they must have permission from their parent/guardian.

An informational session will be held on Monday, April 11 beginning at 4:00 pm. Practices will then be held each Monday and Tuesday evening through May 10, followed by winding the May Pole at the May Fete performances on May 11 – 12.

All practices will be at the Band Shell in Lakeside Park unless announced otherwise. In case of bad weather, please listen to the McPherson radio station KNGL/KBBE 1540 AM – 96.7 FM for cancellation of practice. Practice time will be 4:00 to 4:45 pm.

Information and the permission form can be found here.
