The Lawson Picnic is an annual tradition dating back to 1902!! This year’s event will include annual favorites such as the carnival, vendors, food vendors, live entertainment, a car show, contests and more. We are grateful to our presenting sponsor this year which is Lawson Primary Care Clinic, a service of Excelsior Springs Hospital.

The Lawson Park Board oversees the planning and implementation of the Picnic. You can follow our Facebook page for more information and updates on the Picnic.
