The New Haven Area Chamber of Commerce is proud to bring back the Miller’s Landing Day festival in Historic Downtown New Haven, MO on Saturday, May 4, 2019.
This day is New Haven’s celebration of its origins (town originally named Miller’s Landing) and history which dates back to the 1830’s (including direct links to John Colter and the Lewis & Clark expedition). The day will begin with the John Coulter 5k Run/Walk and end with a spectacular fireworks display.Visitors can browse and shop art/craft booths, watch demonstrations of hand crafts from yesteryear and today and bask in the historical themes of a river town from days gone by.
Live entertainment, with activities to please all ages, along with food & beverages from traditional favorites to festival treats will make this day one to experience. We look forward to seeing you in Downtown New Haven, Missouri.
