Old Timey Fall Festival
The Old Timey Fall Festival on Burnsville’s beautiful Town Square, is just that, a good old fashioned local Festival. The theme of the festival is always “Old Timey”. This annual event is used to invite heritage-crafters to come out and demonstrate the old timey methods of producing their crafts so that the younger generations can see how their ancestors made these wonderful items. The square will be packed with vendors selling a wide variety of handcrafted goods and delicious food.The day will kickoff with the National Anthem followed by the ever-popular Antique Tractors parade. The Antique Cars and Trucks will be positioned around the square, so you’ll have all the time you need to view each one. Cast your vote for the Tractor and Car or Truck of your choice to win this year’s coveted plaques.
Tickets can be purchased for a fabulous Raffle prize. Check out the special tractor race too. Instead of a race of speed this one is for the SLOWEST tractor. The entertainment will be top-notch local talent, singers, musicians, cloggers, children’s games and rides, contests for adults and kids alike. Check our website for details. Of course, as with any good festival, there will be some great food. Soup beans and cornbread, hot dogs, hamburgers and barbercue with all the fixin’s, cold drinks, and booths with home-baked goodies. Mark your calendars for Saturday, September 28, 2019, 10am-4pm, on Burnsville’s Town Square. Grab your lawn chairs and blankets, load up your kids and neighbors for this free event.
