September 18, 19 & 20, 2020 - CANCELLED

After careful and thorough consideration, the volunteer members of the Greentree Festival Executive Committee in conjunction with City staff, has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Greentree Festival scheduled for September 18 – 20. With continued concerns about COVID-19, this was decided as the best course of action to protect the safety of participants, volunteers and staff. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution for all involved in the event.

The mission of the Greentree Festival is to provide an annual event for Kirkwood-area residents, to enhance community spirit, and to showcase the volunteer involvement of residents and their nonprofit organizations.  The inability to know for certain that the festival can complete this mission safely in this environment and the unknowns we face in September make this a prudent decision.

We look forward resuming this historic and long running festival for its 60th  anniversary in 2021.

We love dogs, but dogs don’t always love crowds or loud noises. Please keep your pets and other festival goers safe by leaving your dogs at home, except for service animals and for those dogs entered in the Friday night Kids' Dog Show and Friskies Canine Frisbee competition.
