Mount Vernon, Missouri is a unique community. It possesses, within its city boundaries, everything that is "small-town" America: from public gatherings on the lawn of the historic courthouse to friends and family outings at more than a half-dozen parks found throughout the town. The people of Mt. Vernon have always rallied around the concept of "growing together." At the same time they honor tradition, they embrace the future. Mt. Vernon has a great potential for growth. Located on one of America's major east-west corridors, Mt. Vernon continues to draw interest from industrial and commercial prospects throughout the region and abroad. In addition, community leaders work hard to keep the town's traditions intact. Welcome to Mt. Vernon!

The stage has served us well for many years but is also showing signs of wear and tear. Annual maintenance costs for stage increase each year. The Committee is looking for options to provide a robust and safe stage for entertainment during the festival. Look for up an coming funds raisers for this proposed project.
Apple Butter Makin' Days
With nearly perfect weather all weekend, the annual festival brought a record number of visitors to Mt. Vernon. Many of the craft booths reported a record breaking festival and have already turned in their applications for 2017. We want to thank all those who helped with the organization and operating of the event. It takes everyone to make it the great festival it has become. Free shuttles were again available to ferry attendees from the parking lots to the festival and were greatly appreciated. We look forward to seeing you at the 51st Annual Apple Butter Makin' Days, October 13, 14 and 15, 2017.
The Chamber is always looking for volunteers. If you would like to be involved options include office, computer, photography, committee and event volunteers. Please contact the Chamber and we will plug you in.
