The Puxico VFW Post 7822 began sponsoring the "Homecoming" in 1947 as a way to bring residents of Puxico, past and present, together. The Puxico Homecoming has become an important time of the year for many residents and former residents of Puxico. People return each year to Puxico on the second Tuesday in August to renew old acquaintances. It is truly a "coming home" for many people. The streets of Puxico are filled every year with happy people greeting old friends, reminiscing, and, in general, just having a good time. Each year the VFW has diligently planned to make the Puxico Homecoming "bigger and better". There is something for everyone - carnival rides, beauty pageants, baby contests, square dancing, music, a church service, attendance drawings, a parade, class reunions, alumni meeting and of course the world famous goatburgers.
Homecoming is a community event which takes lots of volunteers from businesses, clubs, churches, and individuals. It really does take a village to accomplish the huge event of the Puxico VFW Homecoming.
The VFW Post 7822 hopes that you will enjoy the many events that have been planned for you and that you will consider this one of the best times you've ever had in Puxico.
