Saturday, September 8th (10 am-5 pm) & Sunday, September 9th (11 am-5 pm)

The festival coincides with the Univest Grand Prix, attracting thousands of people.  Local artisans present their work for sale at the largest festival of the year, amongst great entertainment by local performers.  If you’re looking for a quick bite, lots of vendors host tents equipped with hot grills and cold drinks.  The festival will take place in the center of town on State and Main Streets along with West Oakland and Hamilton Streets. There will be a food court in the Hamilton Street parking lot and live entertainment.

Why it’s our pick: It’s a wonderful opportunity to walk around and look for some hidden finds, including photography, crafts, furniture, and jewelry.  We spent many hours here last year.
