We will be offering a mobile app again this year that can help you find your way around the festival grounds. It has a full schedule and an interactive map that features all of our vendors. Palaroo can be downloaded via the App Store or Google Play.
There is so much entertainment, you’ll be hard pressed to catch it all. As the kids whirl about on the rides to flashing lights and lively music, parents can sample light-as-air cotton candy or cooling snow cones. The festival proves to be a shopper’s delight with everything from handmade crafts to homegrown fruits & vegetables.
The event can be traced back to 1934, with ties to the Clay County 4-H and to William Jewell Colleges’ Homecoming events. Many class reunions and get-togethers are centered around the festival, which is held on the fourth full weekend of September each year.
Featuring FREE live music!
