We are looking forward to the 7th Annual Burnt District Festival

on the Historic Harrisonville Square September 30 & October 1 2016. 

The 2016 Festival has something for everyone!  There are vendors of all kinds, some selling their handmade art and crafts and some showing off their goods and services they want to provide you.  Again there will be a Carnival & Petting Zoo for the kids with activities for all ages.  The Cabin will be open with historical information provided by the Cass County Historical Society.  The parade will start at 11:00am on Saturday from City Park.  There will be a variety of continous live entertainment on the North Stage.  Both Friday and Saturday nights the Wall Street Reunion Garden will be open with music.  This is a fun time to kick back and enjoy.  And of course come hungry, and support those local organizations working hard to provide you those tasty festival time treats. 

New this year, the HHS Marching Band "Royal Regiment" will be in the Parade.  The Business Women of Harrisonville, Hawthorn Bank and the Harrisonville Chamber are sponsoring a "Burnt District Queen Contest".  This is for ladies in 10-12 grades.  They have an opportunity to win scholarship funds.  The crowning will be on September 28th at the HHS PAC at 7pm.  Boy Scout Troop 3 will again provide flag retiring.  Bring your flags that need to be retired.  We also have an Emergency Services Display on Saturday after the Parade on the North side of the Square.  Be sure to make plans to attend!
