The metro-east is known for its long season of festivals. Not a weekend goes by from May through October that there isn't some family-oriented entertainment event going on.
If you don't want to miss all the good family fun right in your backyard, check out the Festivals Calendar here. You'll find homecomings, county fairs, music festivals, parish picnics, car shows, rodeos and more. The calendar begins on this page and continues on Pages C3, C4 and C7.
If you have information about a festival not listed here or updated information about one of these, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 618-236-9773. Information on the festivals will be re-run n the weekly What's Happening listings on the Thursday before each event.
