Holt County Autumn Festival
Join us September 8-11, 2021 for the Holt County Autumn Festival. Each year a county fair is held in Oregon, Missouri, the county seat for Holt County. It usually includes a parade, educational/informative programs, fun events for young and old. The theme for 2021’s celebration is “Oh, The Places We Have Been. 200 years of Missouri.” This year Holt County’s Bicentennial Committee will participate in several events – by hosting a program about Lewis & Clark/the Platte Purchase on Friday night; providing cupcakes for the first 200 fairgoers on Wednesday’s opening night, and participating in Saturday’s parade. We also plan to recognize the county’s nonagenarians during the Saturday parade and to feature an article commemorating their contributions in both county newspapers. The committee also proposes (if funding is available) to plant a commemorative tree following the Festival.
