2 Square Fair - For almost 40 years Square Fair has been a mainstay tradition in Garnett. Held annually on the Saturday before Mother's Day, Square Fair is the "cool" place to bring mom and the entire family.

Enjoy a variety of crafters, business booths, food vendors and a little mix of farmer's market as the festival takes over downtown Garnett. Presented by Garnett Business and Professional Women, Square Fair was founded 40 years ago by the local chapter of American Association of University Women (AAUW). Square Fair has graced the grounds of the Anderson County Courthouse in the center of Garnett as one of the most famous events in the area and one of the largest festivals held in Garnett.

In conjunction with Square Fair, the Pieces and Patch Quilt Guild will have a special quilt exhibit to be held on the north side of the town square.

3 - 4 Lake Garnett Grand Prix Revival -

The 2016 event will be a two-day event to be enjoyed with family and friends; where you will see amazing cars and maybe meet someone new. This year there will be events to suit all tastes, including the famous track event where men and women with steel nerves go screaming by in their pride and joys, with engines making music to chill the nerves.

Even though this year is a two-day event, your level of participation remains flexible with options that include the car show, the autocross event, the Corvette Extravaganza, and the high speed track event. And did we mention entertainment Saturday evening in downtown Garnett? You don’t have to drive your car at speed to enjoy the day. Events on each day will remain independent – you don’t need to attend both days.

The 2016 event will be celebrating an American classic car, the Corvette. A Corvette Extravaganza will take place on the weekend and it is expected that several spectacular cars from multiple states will be in attendance.
