December 7, 2019 - Annual Country Christmas Open House & Craft Bazaar (Blackberry Creek Retreat B&B) - FREE Event to attend.
While our Country Christmas Open House & Craft Bazaar the first weekend in December has been a success, we are adding more "FUN" events to involve community and culture.
In 2017 we hosted an Amish Dinner & Bluegrass evening, and attendees wanted more, so a second event was scheduled and SOLD OUT. Last year, we added a Dessert & Bluegrass Under the Stars event in July and one final Picnic Dinner & Bluegrass Under The Stars in September.. Two planned in 2019.
We are also contemplating Book Signing and Historical Lecture Evenings.
Watch for more events at this page, or on our FaceBook Events page. We're always looking for new ideas.
Missouri Cherry Blossom Festival
Words scribed on this page can't express exactly what to expect at this local Festival with national and international influences. Each year, the last weekend in April, Marshfield, Missouri welcomes visitors and guests from many place and histories. Presidential descendants, stars of film and television, and people with historical imprints to this Ozarks community to fellowship and share their stories.
Imagine descendants of slave Dred Scott hosting reconciliation forums with a great great grandson of Confederate President Jefferson Davis! One might see grandchildren of Presidents conversing with actresses from The Waltons or Little House on The Prairie t.v. shows. Famous Missourians from all walks of life getting a star on the sidewalk outside the Historical Society. Authors receiving awards and signing books. Various awards given to national and community honorees who have left their mark. The great grandson of Sir Winston Churchill, a survivor from Hiroshima or Pearl Harbor, White House staff members and their stories, Veteran members, and musicians all have participated.
Vendors, music, dinners, luncheons, a high tea, and the events go on and on. For a past review of this special Festival, click on this link - Missouri Cherry Blossom Festival.
