Asheboro Fall FestivalArts & Entertainment in Asheboro, North Carolina
Come out to the 47th Asheboro Fall Festival on October 6 & 7, 2018 from 9 am - 5 pm, both days, located in Downtown Asheboro, NC. You will find the food court in Bicentennial Park this year, and the street festival will feature arts & crafts, information booths, "craft food" vendors, and commercial vendors from Salisbury Street to Academy St, along with Sunset to Worth Street (from Church St to Cox St). Keep an eye on www.AsheboroFallFestival.com and our FB page for up to the minute updates and announcements. Hope to see you all there!
We are transitioning into a new system, and we appreciate everyone's patience in dealing with these changes. I will personally answer this one concern: there is a reason why we have decided to jury all vendors. Simply put, we recognize that nonprofits and informations booths, along with commercial booths are not accustomed to undergoing a jury system. Unfortunately, in years past with the Asheboro Fall Festival in particular, we experienced an "anything goes" kind of festi...val application. And we are trying to win back the Asheboro Fall Festival back into our hometown. For example, we felt that some "information" booths were actually simply selling commercial products, and should have been in a commercial vendor booth. Not everyone presents as a challenge. The purpose of the jury system is to ensure that everyone is playing by the rules set forth. This is to make sure that individuals who try and play the system do not ruin it for others. Thank you, Greta for a good question, however, we continue to try and return the festival back into our Asheboro roots. I do ask folks to give the changes a chance before automatically assuming that the changes are ill-concieved and not meticulously thought-out beforehand. We have seen a lot through the years and this festival has a real chance at a huge success for future years.
