Come celebrate Daniel Boone Family Festival. With Fort Dobbs Re-enactors, historical tours and kids areas ~ it's history, shopping, downtown crafters & local merchants, and plenty of entertainment for the entire family.  

Prior to the Festival Join us for "Color Downtown"

Color Downtown is a 1.2 mile fun run event for the whole family to enjoy! Participants will be doused with color as they make their way through the event course. 100% of the proceeds from this event will benefit victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
