Plans are in progress with the assistance of local Neosho community leaders for the staging of the popular Neosho Fall Festival which is scheduled this year for Saturday October 3, 2020. The daylong event, which features a variety of arts, crafts, historical displays, community and commercial vendors, food and music will coincide this year with the Neosho Alumni Associations All School Reunion, which will feature events on both Friday October 2 and Saturday October 3. The combined events, along with Homecoming Football Friday night look to make Neosho The Prime Destination for that weekend in the four-state area.
