Market Day, Pumpkin Festival and Trick or Treat on Main Street

Fayetteville Main Street is planning a variety of family events on Saturday, October 27 in Downtown Fayetteville.

Starting at the Gazebo at 10 a.m, residents can shop at an extended Market Day that runs until 5 p.m. With nearly 100 vendors, it should be easy to find something to purchase and get a head start on your holiday shopping. Joyce Waits, Main Street Coordinator, said that this year’s Market Days continue to grow each year, and have been well received within the community. Many people this year have enjoyed shopping at Market Day where vendors have sold their homemade and homegrown products in record numbers. 

That same weekend also hosts a long-standing tradition for kids of all ages. The Pumpkin Festival and Trick or Treat on Main Street will be a fun spectacle around the square as families are encouraged to come downtown and enjoy hay rides, train rides, face painting, games and much more. These activities will be interspersed between the Market Day vendors, and kids will be able to visit the vendor booths and downtown businesses for trick-or-treating from 3-4 p.m. Also, at 2:30 p.m. is the first “dog” costume contest sponsored by the Rotary Club. Visit their website at RotaryFayettevilleGa.com to register and get more information.

This year, the costume contest will begin at 4 p.m. for children ages 13 and under, with prizes awarded in different age groups. During the day, everyone is encouraged to view the hundreds of decorated pumpkins on display across the street at the Old Courthouse lawn.

Please call 770-719-4173 for more information. Future vendor registration forms are available on the city’s website, fayetteville-ga.gov/events.
