It's Festival Time! The 67th Annual Dogwood Festival

Every spring in mid-Missouri we anxiously anticipate the beautiful blooming Dogwood trees. In honor of these magnificent natural works of art, every year Camdenton hosts the Annual Dogwood Festival. All of the family fun activities take place just up the road from Bridal Cave and Thunder Mountain Park. This year we expect everything to be bigger and better than ever before! 

This festival is one of the best annual events at the Lake of the Ozarks. It celebrates Missouri's state tree, the Flowering Dogwood. While usually seen with gorgeous white flowers, Dogwoods can also be discovered with pink petals too. 

Camdenton's Dogwood Festival holds the record for the longest continuously running festival in the lake area. This year's theme is "Good To Be Green" partly due to the fact that this year's event takes place during Earth Day on Saturday, April 22.

You can find out even more information, like indoor and outdoor booth layouts and participating vendors, on the Camdenton Chamber of Commerce website. If you've never been to the Annual Dogwood Festival, you're missing a fun time for all ages. This year, try your best to get over there and check it all out. It's taking place very close to our family fun Lake of the Ozarks attraction, so you might as well come on out and see us this weekend too! Make it an entire weekend full of Family Fun...
