Signature Events

Weekend-Plans Worthy

Some people say that Pulaski County is always celebrating something. They’re right! Plan your Ozarks getaway around Pulaski County’s signature events!

Families love our signature events. Stroll the carnival midway at Pulaski County Regional Fair in June. July ushers in Old Settlers Days, Waynesville’s most beloved cultural festival. Plan a barbeque-themed weekend during Kickin’ It Route Barbecue Challenge in September. Athletes of all skill levels count the days until Frog Hill Half Marathon and Nasty Pulaski Gravel Grind in October. Strategize for the win and relish in the Mother Road’s glory days during October’s Route 66 Challenge.

Mid America Freedom Rally (18+), Schwagstock, and Dixon’s Cow Days Festival are also worthy of your weekend plans!

Pulaski County’s family-friendly events and activities happen year-round. Jack Frost brings Christmas parades and holiday events. We throw our arms (and the doors to our museums) open for Spring! Summer’s rising mercury reminds us that the Cave State Cruisers Car Show and Tri-County Fair are near. The changing colors of the Autumn leaves signals pumpkin patches and haunted attractions.
