Every year, on the third Saturday of October, the biggest day of the festival begins with the largest parade in Southwest Missouri. This keystone event begins at 9 a.m. and ends around noon. The parade route begins on the Carthage Historic Square and ends at the Carthage Middle School.
Numerous events are scheduled throughout the day to entertain young and young at heart including Willie Arthur Smith's Marching Cobras; an art and crafts festival; car and dog shows; quilt show; food vendors; and live entertainment.
The rest of the festival is filled with a variety of activities including a 5K/10K, beauty pageants, baby and toddler contests, dog skill competition, gospel sing, and a lip-syncing competition. Currently in its 48th year, the Maple Leaf Festival offers family style fun in a home town atmosphere.
