Stanton Old Fashioned Days is Stanton's yearly city celebration. It takes place annually on the second weekend in August. The festival includes: a talent show, pageant, craft & food vendors, city wide yard sales, parades, stage entertainment, tractor and car shows, and a 5K race, along with other sporting events and competitions. Old Fashioned Days Weekend serves as a homecoming reunion for the City, helping to promote its heritage and history, and strives to provide a variety of opportunities for community engagement.
The Stanton Old Fashioned Days Committee is a group of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about continuous improvement in hopes of providing a festival each year that is better than the last. New members and volunteers who are interested in making a positive difference in the Stanton community are always welcome and necessary to the planning, organizing, and operation of the SOFD Festival each year. Regular meetings are at 7 PM on the 4th Monday of every month from January through October, at First Congregational Church in Stanton. Come join the fun!
