Over the years, German and Czech immigrants called this small community home, naming and renaming it many times. At one time, Fayetteville was named Lick Skillet (Lickskillet). Supposedly, latecomers to the numerous community festivals, who complained that all the food was gone, were told to "lick the skillet." Lickskillet Days Festival takes place third weekend in October. Fayetteville celebrates its German and Czech heritage. This family friendly event offers something for young and old. Located around the Historic Fayetteville Town Square and SPJST Hall, activities including kids' activities, pumpkin patch, kiddy train ride, ice-cold refreshments, hamburgers, pastries, pies & kolaches, arts & crafts/folk art, silly contests, live music, horseshoe tournament, parade, and raffles. Tours of the historic Courthouse, jail, and Fayetteville Area Heritage Museum will also be given.Family Fun for Everyone!
