ooler temperatures and a warm welcome await you as Monroe City celebrates fall at the fourth annual Monroe City Fall Festival in St. Jude’s park.

The charming small town festival features the free entertainment of Liberty Jazz under the gazebo, crafts, children’s activities, a wine and beer tasting, concerts and many vendors. Vendors line the park to sell food, gifts, raise funds for causes and provide information. Children enjoy numerous free activities such as bounce houses, craft booths and children’s games. A petting zoo will be provided by Heidi’s Lil’ Ranch of Hunnewell, which features a wide spread of fuzzy and feathered attractions. A scarecrow competition is free and open to all area businesses, families and individuals. The Trowel and Trellis Garden Club of Monroe City organize the contest.
