Cedartown Fall Festival coming up Oct. 7
Cedartown’s annual celebration of all things autumn is coming up on the 40th anniversary of the Fall Festival coming up on Main Street next weekend.
On Saturday, Oct. 7, downtown Cedartown will shut down and fill up with folks from all around the region with an arts and crafts fair, food, the annual Shriner’s parade and more.
Festivities start at 9: 30 a. m. with the Second Steps Dance Studio performing in the park in front of Polk County Courthouse No. 2, followed by the 10 a.m. Shriner’s Parade.
At 11 a.m., the Cedartown- Polk County Humane Society’s annual dog show will be held at the park in front of Courthouse No. 2, and then from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Jasper-based Bluegrass band The 8th of January will be providing music through the afternoon.
Vendor applications are still being accepted, but a number of food and arts and crafts vendors will be on hand for the day.
This year’s fall festival will also include a petting zoo, pony rides and face painting for youth at the Fall Festival will be available as well.
“Our downtown businesses will be having side walk sales and many specials will be offered,” Downtown Cedartown Association director Ramona Ruark added.
A portion of Main Street, from South of Sycamore Street to north of East Ware Street will be closed to traffic from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. for the Fall Festival, and no cars will be allowed to park on the street during that time.
