A 47-year tradition, this award winning outdoor street festival features more than 300 artisans and crafters, fun interactive activities for the kids, live entertainment and great food!
The Fall show is a great time to start your holiday shopping as it features many holiday-themed arts and crafts, as well as great gifts for family, friends and yourself! Be sure to stop by the new River Mill Park to listen to live music and participate in fun activities perfect for the entire family.
In addition to the scheduled performances at River Mill Park and Mamie Davis Park, the Rockledge Assembly of English Country Dancers will be performing throughout the event area. Also, while you are at the show, be sure to stop by the kid’s activity area in River Mill Park to create your own artwork with Edgemoore Art Studio and have your face painted or get your very own balloon art with Fairy Jennabelle.
