Moscow Mills, Mo. – Eagle Fork Farms hosted the Moscow Mills Bicentennial Bluegrass Festival on Saturday, September 25. This free event lasted all day with music from bands like the Missouri River Band, Greg Blake Band and Po ‘Anna.
Hundreds of Bluegrass enthusiasts and residents of Moscow Mills took full advantage of the beautiful early fall day to step out with their lawn chairs to celebrate the event. Small business vendors and food trucks were also on site to offer visitors various special snacks and cocktails, such as Moscow spring water, which were served to commemorate the bicentennial celebration.
Eagle Fork Pumpkin Patch was also open for its regular fall activities such as wagon rides, carriage rides, gem mining, among other family activities.
The celebration has many people looking to see the Bluegrass Festival become an annual event in the future.
“I think doing this every year would be good for Moscow,” said Janice Handing, member of the planning committee.
âI think it’s a wonderful turnout. The first year of doing anything you don’t know what you’re going to get, but it exceeded expectations. I am happy with the participation. I have clients who are wondering if we’ll do it next year, âHanding explained.
While there are no plans yet to continue the Bluegrass Festival in the future, more events are planned in the coming months to celebrate the bicentennial of Moscow Mills. These events include a tractor exhibit, old-fashioned Christmas carols, and a New Year’s bicentennial party.
