The Randolph Arts Guild Announces 47th Annual Asheboro Fall Festival
Asheboro, NC - The Randolph Arts Guild is pleased to announce the 47th Annual Asheboro Fall Festival, to be held the first full weekend in October. The event will kick off on October 4th from 7 pm to 9 pm with a concert in Downtown Asheboro’s Bicentennial Park. Talent will be announced on September 6th, 2019. Vendors will welcome festival-goers on Saturday, October 5th, 10 am – 6 pm and Sunday, October 6th, 12 pm – 6 pm.
The inaugural festival was the Old-Fashioned Fall Festival held in 1972 with approximately 30-35 vendors and was located only on Sunset Avenue in Downtown Asheboro. Today, the Asheboro Fall Festival will have over 150 vendors showcasing their handcrafted goods, delicious food, and local and regional businesses and non-profit information. Since 1972, the Festival has grown to encompass the blocks of Worth St, Fayetteville St, and Sunset Ave, bordered by Cox St, Salisbury St, Academy St, and Church St. With such growth there is a need to increase the footprint of the Festival to allow police and emergency crews access to vendors and for participant’s safety.
This festival is for all ages and will include live music in Downtown Asheboro’s Bicentennial Park, a kidz and teen zone with bounce houses and play areas, arts and crafts provided by the Randolph Arts Guild, entertaining street performers, and a few surprises. Our food vendors will tempt your taste buds with Asheboro Fall Festival favorites of barbecue sandwiches, funnel cakes, roasted corn, and turkey legs. Added to our food courts – located at the end of each major vein of this year’s festival are traditional and unique foods featuring tamales, tacos, spring rolls, gyros and a variety of egg rolls filled with vegetables, Philly cheesesteak, and jerk chicken.
We have extended the deadline for craft, commercial business, and informational vendors. The new date for final submissions is August 23rd. This event is family-friendly and safe for all ages.
