The Calhoun Colt Show Fair & Festival draws people from all walks of life to a small town in West Central Missouri each year to participate in the "Oldest of Its Kind, In Missouri" festival.
The Calhoun Colt Show works to promote and improve quality of life, enhancing a sense of community, and preserving the integrity of our small-town identity and heritage.
“The roots of civilization are elemental traits—good will, neighborliness, fair play, courage, tolerance, open-minded inquiry, patience.” These traits are best transmitted from one generation to the next in small communities, from where they are then spread throughout entire societies. To erode small-town culture was to erode the culture of the nation.” – A. Morgan
