All the magic, entertainment and camaraderie of MO Wizard of Oz Days returns October 23. The MO Wizard of Oz Days has appeared in many small Missouri towns, and on our 7th year makes its way to Macon. The weekend promises to delight fans of all ages like never before; both live and virtual, indoor and out, following Missouri’s safety guidelines to safely offer an unforgettable weekend for all.
Indoor events will take place in and around the Expo Center located at the Macon County Fairgrounds, 1303 South Missouri Street in Macon. Event hours are 10 a.m to 4 p.m.. It’s a Fall Festival with lots of fall decorations, an old-fashioned marionette puppet show by Stevens Puppets and even the Wonderful Wizard’s very own Magic Show.
Don’t miss your chance to meet our official Wizard of Oz characters: Dorothy and Toto, and of course the Scarecrow, but wait, we can’t forget the Wicked Witch of the West! She’ll be cackling there too. It is a Fall Festival after all. You never know what friends you may meet along the Yellow Brick Road.
Plus there’s our phenomenal vendors, displaying everything from Oz collectibles to handmade crafts. You’ll also meet the Oz artists and authors. AND loads of fan, contests, games and so much more! Everywhere you turn will take you to the magical Land of Oz.
“There are also many costume contests for the young and young at heart,” states Amy Balf, Contest Director. :Everything from the Scarecrow and Dorothy look alike contests, Oz Baby contest, Totally Toto pet contest, to the Wicked Witch Cackle contest.” There’s even a Wizard of Oz theme pumpkin decorating contest.
