The Seventh Annual Byrnes Mill Fall Festival will be on Saturday, October 4, 2014, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., at the Byrnes Mill City Park. An estimated 1,000-plus visitors, from all over Jefferson County and South County, came last year to enjoy a celebration of hometown fun, historic pioneer demonstrations and home-baked goodies.
The event is sponsored by the City of Byrnes Mill in partnership with the Historic Preservation Commission of Byrnes Mill. “The Fall Festival is just a wonderful way for people to come together as a city and enjoy their community,'” said Mayor Susan Gibson.
More than two dozen vendors will fill the meadow, offering wood crafts such as birdhouses, baskets and cedar furniture, hand-crafted jewelry, tooth fairy pillows, scented soaps and candles, and local produce and honey products, jams, jellies and baked goods. In addition, there will be kids’ activities, pony rides, Bronco Billie Show, live music, storytelling, and plenty of great concessions. It’s a great fun day for the entire family!
The Historic Hagemeister House will be home to a hub of activity. The house will harken back to days of old with an assortment of pioneer demonstrations. Activities will include history buffs and collectors in pioneer costumes, who will demonstrate grave-robbing, basket-weaving, spinning, dulcimer-playing, weapon-making, furs and arrowhead and Indian displays.
