Events

Year-round something is always happening in Springfield or surrounding communities. Join us on historic Walnut Street and enjoy the region’s finest visual and performing arts at Arts Fest in the spring and Cider Days in the fall. Get your fill of great food at the annual Rock’n Ribs Festival, Sertoma Chili Cookoff, or Taste of Springfield events benefitting local charities. Experience the decades-old traditions of Apple Butter Makin’ Days in Mt. Vernon or the Nixa Sucker Day fish fry. Take in classic cars at the Street Rod Nationals and ANPAC Car Shows. Or ring in the New Year at our family-friendly First Night celebration. From celebrations of music and food to arts, history, and culture, our community finds lots of great reasons to come together.
