Join in the 2021 Celebrate Neosho, an event designed to truly "celebrate Neosho". You may start as early as 8:00 a.m. with the Tour De' Morse Bike Race or the Hickory Crick Trout Fishing Derby. The Festival opens at 3:00 p.m. Vendors, live performances, activities, such as a Corn Hole Tournament, drift trike racing, activities provided by Scout Troop 34, and more. Meander through the displays that mark the lives of notable persons from Neosho, such as George Washington Carver, Thomas Hart Benton, Herman Yeager, and Hugh Robinson. Mark the days past with displays about Fort Crowder, the U.S. Park Service Fish Hatchery, Rocketdyne, and more. Visit one of the philanthropic activities by visiting the Bowl-A-Thon where bowls are being prepared for a fund raiser later in the year which provides funding for Water Gardens in their efforts to provide for the homeless and those in need. Join in an event that was a watershed mark of the '60's and '70's, the Cruise Night. Beginning at 5:00 p.m. participants will begin to cruise Neosho with opportunities to park adjacent to the Festival for attendees to view their cherished rides. Close out the evening at approximately 9:30 p.m. with a grand fireworks display! A great day of fun, free access to the Festival, pre-registration for entry into the various contest that each showcases an individual feature of Neosho. Celebrate Neosho by celebrating with us!
