Scottville Fall Celebration

September, 2023

The City of Scottville created a new event in 2021 called the Scottville Fall Celebration. The idea initially came about when the Scottville Clown Band decided to move their annual August concert to September 11th. Organizers of the Celebrating Success event, that generally occurs in June, decided to join in with the Clown Band concert to create the new event. With the addition of activities for kids and families, a new Scottville experience was born.
