Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive Fall Festival Celebrates 50 Years
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2017, the annual Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive Fall Festival invites visitors from near and far to celebrate fall in Fulton County.
Those who lived along the Spoon River half a century ago created the Scenic Drive to highlight the beauty of the river and the striking fall colors that pop up in the autumn months. At the family-friendly festival, held the first two full weekends in October each year, guests can enjoy delicious food, arts and crafts, live entertainment and, of course, beautiful scenery. Visitors can stop by some of the area’s other attractions as well, including the historical Ellisville Opera House and public boat dock at London Mills.
This year’s festival takes place Oct. 7-8 and 14-15. For more information, visit spoonriverdrive.org.
