The 2021 Missouri Day Festival will be held on Friday, October 15 and Saturday, October 16.
The Missouri Day Festival is the largest festival of the year for Trenton. Sponsored by the Trenton Area Chamber of Commerce, it is held the third weekend in October each year. This event draws thousands of people to the Trenton area. This is a family-friendly event that hosts activities for persons of every age. Adults and children alike can shop with nearly 120 different vendors who come from all over the United States. Many vendors return year after year for this well-attended event. Come on out to play, eat and just have fun. In conjunction with the festival, there is also a marching band competition for high schools throughout Missouri.
In the event of cancellation, vendor will be refunded, in the form of a check, 50% of the amount paid. There are absolutely no refunds after September 1 of the current festival year.
EXCLUSIVES ON BOOTHS:
There are no exclusives on booths (eg: one kettle corn, one barbeque, etc.). However, to the best of our ability, we do limit the number of vendors who sell particular items to three (eg: we allow three kettle corn vendors and spread them out throughout the grounds). In order to continue in this manner, it is very important for vendors to inform us (on your application or via a menu) of the items you are selling.
Please note that our space is limited to about 17 food vendors. Once we reach that number, we will continue to accept applications and add them to our waiting list for the current year. We also add the information to our database so you will receive applications for future festival years. We start receiving applications the weekend of the event, so get yours in early if you would like to participate.
This is a family friendly event. Please make sure the items you sell are ‘G’ rated. If we feel you are selling something inappropriate, you will be asked to put the item(s) away. If you do not comply, you will be asked to leave. FIREARMS are NOT permitted to be sold on the fairgrounds. If you are selling knives or swords, they must be boxed when they leave your booth.
Security will be provided from 9pm to 5am on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights during the festival.
Hours are subject to change. Vendor set-up is either Thursday from 7:00am to 8:00pm or Friday 7:00am to 9:00am. Vendors open for business Friday 10:00am to 7:00pm and Saturday 9:00am to 7:00pm. Vendors WILL NOT be permitted to bring their vehicles into the fairgrounds for tear-down prior to 7:00pm on Saturday. This will be strictly enforced. The safety of everyone comes first as well as consideration for other vendors still selling. If you cannot abide by these regulations, please pass your application to another potential vendor.
Please note we DO NOT operate a campground. The festival grounds are not set up as campsites. However, flea market vendors have the option to camp within their booth space & use the electricity provided for their booth ONLY. If you choose to park your camper at the north fence on the grounds and camp, there will be a $30 camping fee. Crowder State Park show contact info

Vendors parking is located along the ball field fences both the North and south sides of festival grounds. Do not park in the disabled parking spaces around the grounds. If vendor vehicles are improperly parked, they will be asked to move and may be subject to towing along with all associated fees incurred. Flea market vendors may park within their booth area, but will NOT be allowed to move vehicles during festival hours.
