Celebrate the Changing of the Seasons 
Annual October Harvest Festival in Boaz is set for October 4-5. 

Decatur, Ala. – Autumn and its cooler temperatures are around the corner and the north Alabama town of Boaz is gearing up for its fall festival. Returning for the 55th year, the October Harvest Festival is set for October 4-5, 2019, bringing with it two days of music, arts and crafts, classic car show, corn hole competition and other family-friendly fun. 

During the October Harvest Festival, over 200 arts and crafts vendors will line Main Street for shoppers to find that one-of-a-kind item. Children will be entertained throughout the day with a free inflatable play area with rides and games (tickets required for a nominal fee). A splash pad and playground will also be open at the new Old Mill Park. Additional activities include a Friday night corn hole competition, live music, a huge antique car show with muscle cars, trucks, 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 the 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 takes place in historic downtown Boaz, located along Highway 168 just off US Highway 431. Hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
