A Look Back at the Roots of Solon Beef Days

The origin of Solon Beef Days traces back to a time when the community yearned to revive the spirit of old-time celebrations. Four civic-minded groups—the Solon Optimist Club, Solon Fire Department, Solon American Legion, and the Solon Jaycees—came together with a vision. Their collaboration sparked the creation of an event that would not only celebrate the town’s camaraderie but also its agricultural heritage. Hence, the name “Beef Days” was born, a nod to the Johnson County Cattlemen’s Association’s role in serving up steaks that first year.

What started as a one-time event to rejuvenate the community spirit has grown into an annual festival, cherished by residents and visitors alike. The dedication of countless volunteers and the support of local non-profit organizations have been pivotal in making Beef Days a success story of community effort and enthusiasm.

Beef Days: More Than Just a Celebration

Beyond the fun and festivities, Solon Beef Days serves a higher purpose. It stands as a significant fundraiser for local non-profit groups, with the Solon Beef Days Committee alone donating over $385,000 to support local community projects, causes, and scholarships. This celebration is a testament to what a community can achieve when it comes together for the greater good.
