Annual Picnic

Vintage Leonard Picnic Ad

This Leonard Graphic spread from 1940 advertises a Rodeo, a Carnival, free ice water and “ample policed parking space.”

Leonard’s annual picnic has been a tradition since 1880, when settlers held a picnic on July 22 to celebrate the sale of the new town’s first lots.

The three day celebration during the third weekend in July draws current and former Leonard residents, as well as visitors from all over the Metroplex to the square and Old City Park in downtown Leonard.

Recent festivities have included carnivals, fishing tournaments, the Miss Leonard pageant, golf tournaments, musical performances, BBQ, fireworks and more old-fashioned family fun.

The picnic has both day and evening events, including rides for the kids
