Cedar­town mov­ing an­nual fes­ti­val and pa­rade to Novem­ber, chang­ing names

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - Staff re­ports

A change is in the air this fall for a long­time event held in Cedar­town on Main Street.

The Down­town Cedar­town As­so­ci­a­tion an­nounced that they are chang­ing the name and date of the Fall Fes­ti­val to Mar­ket on Main.

This event will now be held an­nu­ally on the first Saturday of Novem­ber from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in His­toric Down­town Cedar­town and will still see much of Main Street closed off. The event moves from early Oc­to­ber af­ter the past few years of warmer tem­per­a­tures stick­ing around through the early por­tion of fall.

“We are look­ing forward to at­tract­ing new ven­dors and en­joy­ing cooler weather dur­ing the Mar­ket on Main,” the or­ga­ni­za­tion said in a re­lease. “We in­vite all art/craft, food and chil­dren’s ac­tiv­ity ven­dors to par­tic­i­pate.”

The ven­dor fees will re­main the same. Plans also in­clude two dif­fer­ent bands that will per­form dur­ing Mar­ket on Main at op­po­site ends of the event area.

The an­nual sanc­tioned Shriners Pa­rade will still be held as well, and will be­gin at 10 a.m. and the Cedar­town Polk County Hu­mane So­ci­ety will have their an­nual Dog Con­test at 11 a.m.
