About the event

The first SantaCaliGon Days festival was held in 1940 to celebrate the unique heritage of the City of Independence as the starting point of the Santa Fe, California, and Oregon Trails. A second celebration was held after World War II in 1947. The festival was not held again until 1973. In 52 years, the SCG has evolved into one of the nations premier FREE festivals, drawing more than 300,000 people each Labor Day weekend.
