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. Step back in time, during Old Settlers Days the last weekend in July. August brings the Route 66 Yard Sale -100 miles of bargains along America’s Mother Road. September features the Crocker Railroad Days, Route 66 Hogs and Frogs, and Dixon Cow Days. Athletes of all skill levels count the days until Frog Hill Half Marathon and Nasty Pulaski Gravel Grind in October. Plan an overnight or two during the holidays during Light Up Pulaski, the county-wide holiday light competition!

But that’s not all! Even more, Pulaski County’s events and activities happen year-round! Plan for the 4-day Memorial Weekend event – Mid America Freedom Rally (18+). Summer’s rising mercury reminds us that the Cave State Cruisers Car Show and Tri-County Fair are near. Changing colors of the Autumn leaves signals Patriot Day Festival and other fall festivals, crisp days floating and catching the colors along the Big Piney or Gasconade River, and haunted attractions. Jack Frost brings festive Christmas parades and other joyful holiday events.
