Join us to celebrate everything goat! This is an annual event that features local goat raisers, workshops and kid's activities! Goat milk, goat cheese, wool, and animal husbandry are covered in this one-day event at the Boonville Fairgrounds. ALL FREE!

Bring your bike and get a prize! Be sure to remember your helmet too. The parade at 11:30 will be people dressed like goats, or bikes dressed like goats! Please come dressed in your favorite goat costume! Let's pay tribute to our wonderful animal friends who provide us with so much. 'Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!'
