MayFest in Odessa

Join us for an array of fun activities on May 7th, 2022!

The Corbit-Calloway Memorial Library hosts an annual community fair called “MayFest in Odessa” on the first Saturday of every May. After two years of being “off”, we are bringing it back! This event features outdoor crafters, vendors, food, games and prizes for kids. We also have live music, a petting zoo, wandering costumed characters, a gigantic book sale, and an exciting huge raffle. About 1000 people come throughout the day to enjoy our events. Make sure you’re one of them! All proceeds benefit our annual summer reading program. These funds help us bring humanities, educational, sensational, interactive, stem and amazing programs to the library that is available for free to ALL.
