“Route 66” Summerfest will be held June 3-4 in Rolla, Missouri. This is the 28th year for this event. It was originally started to promote Downtown Rolla but has evolved into an area wide celebration for all ages to promote Old Route 66 and the beginning of summer.
Friday night we kick off Summerfest with a cruise down Route 66 from St. James to Rolla and the first round of the tennis tournament. The activities begin in the festival lot in Downtown Rolla with the Miss “Route 66” pageant, Drummers Competition and Movie Under the Stars.
Saturday starts bright and early at 8 a.m. with the car show lining up on Pine Street in Downtown Rolla. The arts & crafts booths open at 9 a.m. along with the food vendors, kids activities, the famous “burnout contest” at 5 p.m. and the street dance at 7:30 p.m. There are many other events all throughout the day.
This is just a preview of some of the events. Check out the schedule of events for a full listing.
