A Harvest of Fun
Boaz’s Harvest Festival is set for October 2-3. 

Decatur, Ala. – Cooler temperatures are making its way across north Alabama which means towns and communities are gearing up for their fall celebrations. Set for October 2-3, 2020, the Harvest Festival invites everyone to downtown Boaz for two days of family-friendly fun including music, arts and crafts, classic car show, corn hole competition, beauty pageant and more. 

During the annual autumn event, over 200 arts and crafts vendors will line Main Street for shoppers to find that one-of-a-kind item. A splash pad and playground will be open at Old Mill Park located at 10315 AL Hwy 168. Additional activities include a Friday night corn hole competition, live music, a huge antique car show with muscle cars, trucks and motorcycles and the Miss Harvest Festival Pageant where a one-year tuition scholarship to Snead State Community College will be awarded to the upper division winner.
Festivalgoers will not want to miss the chance to get a Harvest Festival t-shirt designed by a talented local student, and many of the shops located in the downtown area will have sidewalk sales and special offers in addition to the festivities. 

The free event, now in its 56th year, takes place in historic downtown Boaz, located along Highway 168 just off US Highway 431. Hours are 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. Festivalgoers are encouraged to wear masks or face coverings as per state guidelines and to practice social distancing and maintain a distance of six feet from anyone not in your immediate family.
