ABOUT THE ACTIVITY
Area youth of all ages are invited to have fun and get muddy at The Alliance of Southwest Missouri’s annual Mudstock, taking place on Saturday, July 8th in Carthage at Myers Park (behind Lowe’s – follow the Mudstock signs). The event will be held from noon to 3:00 p.m. and is free of charge to the public. In order for children to participate, permission forms must be completed by the child’s parent/guardian. For children age 12 and under, the parent/guardian must also remain on Mudstock grounds during the event.
As the name implies, Mudstock is a mud-filled event featuring mud pit, and multiple water features, all designed by the Carthage Fire Department, Carthage Police Department, and the Carthage Caring Communities Coalition.
Mudstock is a fun, interactive alternative to drugs and alcohol that promotes getting muddy on the outside while staying clean on the inside. Sunscreen, shorts, shirts, socks, and shoes are required (NO SANDALS ALLOWED – NO EXCEPTIONS).

Kids younger than 12 are not allowed to stay on event grounds without a parent or guardian, sorry no exceptions. Anyone participating will have to sign off on the waiver to play, even parents.
COST TO PLAY
Mudstock is FREE! The Alliance of SWMO wants to bring a family friendly event to the community. Our hope is to teach kids the importance of staying drug free. The event message is to “Keep your insides clean and drug free, Get your outsides dirty!”.
