About this Event

Springfield’s Annual Park Day Reunion will be held August 2-4 at Silver Springs Park, 1100 N. Hampton, as well as other locations around the city.
The Park Day Reunion takes place at Silver Springs Park every year on the first weekend of August, bringing together friends and family from Springfield and around the country. Events are organized by the Springfield Reunion Club, in partnership with the Springfield-Greene County Park Board.

This year’s theme is “Come Back for the Throw Back” and participants are encouraged dress like the 70s, 80s and 90s, “whatever you were wearing back then.” Also new this year: co-ed softball Saturday morning and a Saturday afternoon 3-point basketball shootout.
