Santa Fe Trail Days
Join in the fun when New Franklin celebrates the original starting point of the trail during Santa Fe Trail Days. For over 40 years, food and craft vendors have been lining the streets and participating in different events. Some of these events include a Cruise-In, dancing, demonstrations, performances, contests and entertainment for kids, teens and adults. On Saturday the parade has theme-oriented floats, old cars, a Conestoga wagon, carriages, horses, area musicians and so much more. Each evening includes nighttime activities, dancing, bands and a beer garden.
