Annual Amish Quilt Auction

Every Fall people come from all the surrounding states to participate in the Amish quilt auction. The event has grown as the number and quality of the quilts has increased over the years.

The event is sponsored by the Jamesport Community Association (JCA). The JCA purchases a quilt each year and conducts a raffle to raise funds for local events. The JCA quilt is displayed at City Hall where raffle tickets can be purchased.

This event is one of the highlights of the year in Jamesport. Other events during the year include Heritage Days, the Antique Consignment Auction, May Days Festival, All American Handcrafted Auction & City Wide Garage Sale, Christmas Craft Festival, and annual Amish Farm Consignment Auction for the benefit of the local Amish school.
