78th Annual Jean Pierre Chouteau Day Celebration & Parade

Sat, October 8, 2016

This Celebration is held in Honor of Major Jean Pierre Chouteau the Founder of Salina. It is a state recognized day and is held each year on a Saturday near the 10th of October.

Chouteau Day is one of Salinas largest events.  We celebrate a colorful past and progressive future. The day is chocked full of games, entertainment and parade for our citizens and attracts people from surrounding communities. Festivities begin around 8 am with live music from the Carl Belew Memorial Stage from speakers located all throughout town. Vendors of all kinds are also located throughout town on both sides of the street. 

We are always in need of volunteers to help with the events throughout the day. If you would like to volunteer your time or donate funds please contact the Salina Area Chamber of Commerce @ 918-434-8181
