Moscow Mills, Mo. - Eagle Fork Farms hosted Moscow Mills’ Bicentennial Bluegrass Festival on Sat., Sept. 25. This free event was an all-day affair with music from bands like the Missouri River Band, Greg Blake Band and Po’ Anna.
Hundreds of Bluegrass appreciators and Moscow Mills residents took full advantage of the beautiful, early fall day to come out with their lawn chairs to celebrate the event. Small business vendors and food trucks were also on the scene to provide visitors with various snacks and specialty cocktails, like the Moscow Spring Water, which were served to commemorate the Bicentennial Celebration.
Eagle Fork Pumpkin Patch was also open for their regular fall activities such as wagon rides, horse-drawn carriage rides, gemstone mining among other family-friendly activities.
The celebration has many individuals wanting to see the Bluegrass festival become an annual event in the future.
“I think doing this every year would be a good thing for Moscow,” planning committee member, Janice Handing, stated.
“I think it’s a wonderful turnout. The first year doing anything, you don’t know what you’re going to get, but it has exceeded expectations. I’m happy with the turnout. I’ve got customers wondering if we’re going to do this next year,” Handing explained.
While there are no plans yet to continue the Bluegrass Festival into the future, there are additional events in the coming months to celebrate the Bicentennial of Moscow Mills. These events include a tractor show, old-fashioned Christmas caroling and a New Year’s Eve Bicentennial Bash.
