There’s never been a better place to get away, leave your worries behind, relax, stay awhile, and enjoy some great entertainment in a down-home atmosphere than at the Missouri Festival and RV Park. Located on 40 wooded acres, the Missouri Festival and RV Park is located just four miles north of Dixon, MO on Highway 133. Historically, the Park has been referred to as the Bluegrass Capital. Entertainer, Michael Hargis, was intrigued when an email popped up that said, “Save the bluegrass festival in Dixon, MO.” Michael saw this as an opportunity to keep great traditions alive in the heart of the Ozarks, and also develop a place where he could help dreamers get a taste of the spotlight.
Not only is Missouri Festival and RV Park a place for dreamers, it’s a wonderful getaway destination whether for the day to enjoy some live entertainment, for the weekend participating in a festival, or for the week in your camper to kick back and enjoy the quiet of the country. There’s something for everyone. You know the saying, “it’s the journey, not the destination?” Well, in this case you have the best of both worlds. Not far off the beaten path, the drive to Missouri Festival and RV Park is beautiful with rolling hills, woods, bluffs, and quaint towns. Once there, you are greeted with a friendly “Hello” and welcomed into the family.
Michael Hargis, together with his wife Christi working with John and Christine Brunner have grown Missouri Festival and RV Park into a destination venue worth visiting. Locals come because it is a place of family fun and community in their own back yard. Old and new friends come to dance, sing and relax in an at home family setting. Folks from not so far away love to come out with their RV or camper to stay to get away from their bustle of their lives and kick back by the fire rings, have some great food, and fellowship. Yet others will drive thousands of miles and plan their vacation around all the park’s events and festivals, onsite Air Soft Park, Flea Markets as well as all the great boating, fishing, hiking, golf, museums, and much more in the surrounding area.
The owners have been successful in keeping Bluegrass alive in Dixon, and thanks to Michael Hargis Entertainment, the park is buzzing all season with all kinds of music.
The park is not all about music either. The owners have a great mix of interest to have something for everyone. John and Christine Brunner excited to organize the first Fiber Festival to the area where vendors and producers of mostly animal fibers come together to show their wares. This event caters to knitters, spinners, weavers, dyers and crocheters, and also to anyone who is interested in learning about the fiber arts with demonstrations of different materials, techniques and patterns.
