Community and Outreach
Karval is a busy town with community activities year-round. This is a very social community with hospitable, friendly folks who love to get together to celebrate holidays, school events, bridal/baby showers, birthdays, and just being together. Below is a sample list of annual activities.

Karval Mountain Plover Festival
This bird watching festival takes place for three days in late April and attracts bird watchers from far and wide. The Karval Alliance sponsors the event, but all of the community organizations contribute by cooking and serving meals and providing evening entertainment. Community members are welcome to join bird watching trips, listen to outside presenters, and to attend the Saturday evening banquet and entertainment. For updated information on the Karval Mountain Plover Festival, visit the website Karval.org.
Fourth of July Celebration
The best place to celebrate America’s independence is at the Karval Town Park and the adjacent Broken Bone Arena. Area youth participate in a gymkhana, followed by a roping team competition for the adults. Plenty of hometown cooking and hospitality are on hand at the community potluck. Everyone is welcome to stop by and enjoy the food and action.
After children trick-or-treat in the community, they head over to the Karval Community Building for a Halloween carnival. A warm supper is available and children love to go among the booths playing games – basketball, fishing, bingo, and penny toss. Every organization in the community hosts a booth. Proceeds support the Karval Community Club.
Karval School Homecoming
The citizens of Karval love their youth and, as a result, love the Trojans. Homecoming in the fall is a time for all Trojans past and present, as well as Trojan fans, to gather to enjoy a parade, barbecue, volleyball game, banquet, and Western dance. If you want to feel the prairie spirit and be awed by alumni pride, be sure to stop by and enjoy Karval School’s Homecoming.
