48th Annual Kirkwood Greentree Festival--Sept 12-14

It's hard to even know where to start with the Kirkwood Greentree Festival--there's so much going on! Your best bet for details is to go to the website and see what strikes your fancy. There's a car show (fee to compete but not to view the cars), demonstrations of arts and crafts, food vendors, numerous performing groups, kids' activities, and more!

The festival opens Friday, Sept 12, at 5pm. At 6pm is the kids' dog show and 7:30 is the canine frisbee competition. Sh-Boom will be performing from 6:30-9:30pm. The arts and crafts/folklife booths will not be open Friday night, so for those you'll need to wait until Saturday at 8:30am.

At 10am on Saturday is the parade and from noon to 7pm the kids' activities will be open in addition to several musical performances. While the festival runs until 7pm on Saturday, the arts and crafts booths are closing at 6pm so don't wait too long!

Sunday everything opens at 10am. Don't miss the car show from 10am-4pm and the sailboat regatta at noon. Noon to 5pm boasts several more musical performances as well.
