What is Celebrate Springfield?

We don’t want to just like where we live…we want to celebrate it! For the month of September, we worked with area businesses and fellow community members to remove the barriers that exist in our city so that everyone had a chance to not just experience the attractions, amenities, and resources in Springfield, but truly celebrate them!

How to CELEBRATE SPRINGFIELD

Have you ever seen pictures of people doing things in Springfield and thought, “I’d love to do that too, but I have no idea how or where to start?” We’ve got you covered.  We’ve built our website to be an  easy resource to learn what you should know before you go to each activity on our “Things To Do” page.

The Great Outdoors

Springfield is nestled in the beautiful Ozarks, making it a true outdoor destination. There are countless ways to experience Springfield by trail, water and or through our parks. Not to mention the many community events that enhance the culture of our region. That’s why the main focus of this year’s Celebrate Springfield is on our access to the outdoors! It’s everywhere, not difficult to access not matter the skill or ability level and promises a new memory to be made with each experience.

Celebration at Jordan Valley

After spending a month focusing on experiencing Springfield in new ways, it was time to Celebrate Springfield! The community came together to join in on a family friendly party at Jordan Valley Park on October 2. With live music from three local bands, eats from food trucks, tie-dying t-shirts, a science experiment, games, kite flying, pickleball, balloon animals, character meet and greets and more, there was fun to be had no matter who you are!
