Monett Strawberry Festival

22 May

1st Annual Monett Strawberry Festival

June 3rd and the 5th, 2011 5:00- 10:00PM • June 4th 8:00AM- 10:00PM

In the early 1900’s Strawberries were shipped from Monett all over the U.S.A. from the railroad, just one block south of Broadway.  With that extensive history, and the fact Strawberries are in season in early June, Monett is presenting a sweet fun Festival.

The attendance to the Monett Strawberry Festival is free to the general public.  All events are accessible for people with disabilities.

Here is a listing for some of the events that will be part of the Strawberry Festival

Music:
There will be local bands and musicians playing during the day on the stage at the east end of the 400 block of Broadway.
Friday evening will feature a concert by Mark Chapman
Saturday evening will feature a concert by The Timberline Bluegrass Band
There will also be performances by Captain’s Son, Angela Bennett, Robert Pommert and The Bootkickers.
All music events are free to the public.

Drama:
A play about the history of Strawberries in Monett has been written, and will be performed each evening.

Talent Show:
There will be a “Talent Show” each day, featuring acts of all kinds, from dancing and singing to juggling, it’s open, as long as it is “Family Friendly”.

Karaoke Contest:
A Karaoke Contest will take place on Saturday.

Children’s Pageant:
A “Petite” Strawberry King and Queen will be crowned at the Strawberry Festival.  Children from infants to 5 years old can enter.

Poetry, Prose, Song, and Poster Contests:
In April and May we will be having contests for Grade School, Middle School, and High School students for Poetry, Prose, Songs and Posters relating to Strawberries in Monett.  The winners will be showcased on stage during the Festival.

Car Show:
There will be a Cruise In Car Show on Saturday.  The public will get to vote for their favorite cars, trucks and motorcycles in “Decade” categories.

Art Show:
Friday and Saturday there will be an Art Show in one of the stores on Broadway.  This art show will feature Children, Teen, and adult categories.  This will include Paintings, drawings, wood carvings, sculptures, photography, and “Other Media” catagories.

Bake Off:
There will be a contest for the best Strawberry Preserves, Jams, Pies, Cakes, Cookies, and any other Strawberry related foods, as well as best “Non-Strawberry” Berry foods.  This will be simular to the old County Fairs.

Inflatable Kid’s Rides:
There will inflatable kid’s rides provided by the Fun Zone from Cassville.  There will be a charge for these rides.

Vendors:
There will Craft Booths, Food Booths, and Non-Profit Organizaing Booths.  For information.

Our goal is to bring a fun event to Monett that is as refreshing as a step back into the past and relaxing as well as entertaining.

Come downtown, eat some strawberry ice cream or maybe some strawberry shortcake, enjoy the show.

Home Grown Festival and House Tour This Weekend – in Old North St. Louis

13 May

Be prepared to be inspired at the “Old North St. Louis Home Grown Festival and House Tour” Saturday, May 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There is so much to enjoy about the redevelopment of Old North St. Louis. And AgriMissouri will be there to help celebrate every bit of it.

Just this year the community-based revitalization efforts of ONSL led to St. Louis’ first co-op grocery store, the re-opening of Crown Square, recognition by the National Historic Trust for Preservation, Habitat for Humanity’s completion of 17 new LEED platinum homes and the development of the 13th Street Garden. The self-guided tour allows visitors to visit homes and gardens and witness some of the dramatic changes of the neighborhood at their own pace. A free shuttle service will also be provided.

Tickets are available online and on the day of the event. Included in the tour booklet is a coupon for free ice cream from Crown Candy, an Old North Saint Louis landmark since 1913. For more information go www.onsl.org. To learn more about AgriMissouri, head to AgriMissouri.com.
