After being cancelled for the last two years, Winfield's Mule Day festival is back and we look forward to a great weekend of food, music, a huge parade and all your favorite vendors.
The tradition began on September 11, 1975, by Curt Estes, Winfield Chamber of Commerce, and Max Brasher, Sr., to honor the hard-working mules of the day.
Mr. Robert Vickery and Mr. Jack Guin, both from Winfield, were major contributors. Mr. Estes lived to see seven Mule Day Parades, with attendance increasing to over 25,000. People attend the festival from many parts of the Southeast. Our Mule Day founding fathers never dreamed that honoring these hard-working, long-eared mules would have become such a big hit with the folks.
Mule Day is celebrated the 4th Saturday of September each year, so mark your calendars and don't miss all the fun!
