This year a committee of Kami Ryan, Linseh Johnson and Bill Cochran have been working hard to come up with some new events and ideas to make Oswegofest even more exciting.  New this year are FREE Amusement Rides 2017 poster by Party Station. They include a Mechanical Spider,(like a mechanical bull) Tubs of Fun, Gyroscope, Flying Swing and more! Also new is Hot Wheels Drag Racing. Prior to Oswegofest everyone has been enjoying the Rock Hunt for prizes donated by area businesses and a Medallion Hunt for a $250 prize.

The Car Show will be back along with some other favorites like the Pumpkin Decorating Contest, Baby Contest, Bounce House, 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament and of course the Fire Dept.'s pulled pork Barbecue. Entertainment will be provided by TWO DUDES with a Radio. The prizes will be given away at 1:00 pm so be sure to be there then. There is a long list of vendors bringing great food and crafts and so many more fun things to do there is just too much to list! So be sure come out and enjoy the fun! A special thank you to all the businesses that donated to make this a great day!


150th Birthday Celebration

Well the citizen's of Oswego called upon their Pioneer roots and powered on through a rainy evening to celebrate well the 150th birthday of their town. KOAM Channel 7 was there and did a very nice job of reporting the event. Although the weather caused a few changes in the schedule of events many stayed and enjoyed the very special evening.



Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley.  Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem.  Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
