Fall brings the staging of Conyers’ longest-running festival, the 29th annual Olde Town Fall Festival, to be held on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Coordinated by the City of Conyers and the Conyers Main Street Program, the festival draws residents and visitors to historic Olde Town for a day of browsing among artists, crafters and local merchants in Olde Town Conyers.
"We’re proud that local clogging groups, popular arts and crafters as well as local non-profits will be returning to the streets of Olde Town for this Conyers tradition," said festival organizer Christina Coppock of the Conyers Main Street Program.
The Olde Town Fall Festival features two stages of entertainment on Railroad Street at the Conyers Depot and in the Olde Town Pavilion, arts and crafts vendors, food and a children’s area. The festival will take place on Center, Commercial and Railroad Streets and those streets will be closed to traffic beginning at 6 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 24 until approximately 6 p.m. that evening.
A children’s area will feature games, face painting and inflatables. The Conyers Police Department and Rockdale County Fire Department and Sheriff’s Department will be on hand for fun safety activities and interaction with children and adults, alike. More than 85 vendors selling wares such as jewelry, baked goods, artwork, food, handmade crafts, woodworking and floral arrangements will be on hand.
Admission and parking are free for the festival. For more information, visit www.conyersga.com or call the Conyers Welcome Center at 770-602-2606.
