Burnt District Festival

Visit the "Burnt District Festival" Facebook page  

We are looking forward to the 8th Annual Burnt District Festival

on the Historic Harrisonville Square October 6 & October 7 2017. 

The 2017 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 Harrisonville High School.  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. 

The HHS Marching Band "Royal Regiment" will be in the Parade again this year. 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 at the HHS PAC at 7pm.  Boy Scout Troop 3 will again provide flag retiring.  Bring your flags that need to be retired.  Be sure to make plans to attend!
