Nixa’s Sucker Days Raises Money for Nonprofits and Churches Despite Rain

Nixa, Mo. (KY3) – The Nixa Chamber of Commerce estimates its Sucker Days festival will raise thousands of dollars for churches and nonprofits.

The festival’s main event on Saturday featured professional wrestling. Sucker Days features live music, food trucks, rides, and shopping from many local vendors.

“The economic impact this has on our community goes even further than Nixa,” Russell said. “All of our local vendors are doing well, but I’ve noticed that about 80% of our arts and crafts vendors, over 100 of them, all have a 417 area code. Of our food trucks, 95% of them have an area code of 417, which means we “impact not only Nixa, but definitely the region.”

Nixa leaders also say it’s a time to celebrate community.

“Everyone looks forward to this every year. He unites the community very well. People who normally wouldn’t hang out come and go on Main Street, eating and drinking and having fun. The entertainment is really well received and brings everyone together, and everyone is having a great time. It’s really good,” said Jarad Gibbins, mayor of Nixa Pro Tempore.

Sucker Days continues on Sunday.
