    Sponsored by Robinson Construction

    Join us for the 32nd Annual Perryville Mayfest. This year the festivities will take place on Wednesday, May 10th through Saturday, May 13th on the square in downtown Perryville, Missouri.

    With food and drink vendors, a parade, craft fair, carnival, and live music being just a small part of the 2017 Mayfest schedule of events, we are sure to bring a big crowd again this year.  Other events include a tractor, bike and car show, and washer tournament. 

    Parade, Friday, May 12th | 6:00 p.m.

    The Perryville Area Chamber of Commerce will host a community parade on Friday, May 12th at 6:00 p.m. to celebrate Mayfest. The parade route will leave from the City Park down Ste. Maries St, turn left on Main Street and go left on South Street (past the City Parking Lot) at which point the parade will end and you may return to the City Park. Join in the fun – it’s FREE to enter!
