A lot going on in St. Maries!


Summer Grass Drags in St. MariesJuly is one of the best months to live or visit St. Maries!

In addition to great weather and a multitude of outdoor adventures, we have car shows, art shows, family-oriented events and the St. Joe Valley Car Club’s annual dance at the Cormana Building.

This year is the first for the Rat Rods Car Show at Aqua Park July 14. To qualify as a Rat Rod, forget the polish, forget the detailing, cars must be rusty and even a little dusty. Approximately 30 rods are expected to be parked along the Aqua Avenue next to the St. Joe River for the one-day show.

Save the polish for the return of the St. Joe Valley Car Club’s Show-n-Shine at City Park July 21. More than 100 cars are expected to fill the park and that’s a whole lot of chrome.

And for the kidos the St. Maries Rotary Club will sponsor its annual Family Fun Day at City Park. Not just the kids, but there will be tons of fun activities for the entire family.

In the mood for some good old rock & roll? Dance to the music of the Fabulous Kingpins at the ever-popular Car Club Dance July 21. Doors open at 8:30PM for the over 21 crowd.

And Art Shows! July starts with the Artist Reception from 3-5PM July 7 at the Art Gallery.

And you won’t want to miss the smART Festival under the cottonwood trees at Cherry Bend Boaters Park July 21 and July 22. Vendors from throughout the northwest bring their wares, their crafts, and their art for a two-day festival along the river. In addition art, there are children’s crafts, food vendors, a beer garden and music. So plan on spending the day or the weekend at the smART Festival.

If speed’s more your thing, check out the Summer Sucks Grass Drags. There’s no snow for the area snowmobile enthusiast so they’ll be running on the grass near in Meadowhurst near the high school.

The St. Joe Snow Riders Club organized the two-day race event to coincide with the other activities planned for a truly great weekend.
