The beginning of fall rings in the return of a tradition people young and old both enjoy fall festivals! The 43rd Annual Old Iron Works Festival, one of the longest-running festivals in the Ozarks, will return this coming Saturday. The event will take place at Meramec Spring Park, which will look stunning with the leaves changing color. This festival will feature numerous demonstrations of skills that were important to the way of life for people living in the mid-1800s. Over 50 crafters will be on hand to help visitors learn about doll making, quilting, wood carving, and blacksmithing. There will also be live performances, as well as hands-on opportunities during demonstrations.
Daily admission will be $20 per carload or free with a Maramec Spring Park Season Pass.
