Annual Events

St. Patty's Fest

Our first event of the year is St. Patty's Fest, held the Saturday before St. Patrick's day. Children's Activities are the focus of the day at the OSS. Vendors surround the square offering items for sale, along with food, games, and music. Sponsored by the Route 66 Fest Committee. See Current News for the latest view.


Freedom Fest

Also sponsored by the Route 66 Fest Committee, this festival is held in June. The OSS volunteers assist children making a craft with a patriotic theme.


Music, crafts, and refreshments are the order of the day on the square in Waynesville and at the Old Stagecoach Stop.


Christmas on the Square


This has become a very popular annual event in the community. Held the first Thursday evening in December, it definitely kicks off the holiday season. Vendors are scattered about the square, providing an early opportunity to buy those gifts. The Old Stagecoach Stop is decorated for the season. Lit by oil lamps, the ambience is one not forgotten. The Old Stagecoach Stop Foundation offers free refreshments in the 1915 Kitchen. The fireplaces are burning in both of the log cabins providing a place to warm up if the weather requires it.
