Over a dozen entertainers are scheduled to perform and 220 vendors have reserved booths for the annual Autumn Street Fair this Saturday in downtown McMinnville.
Activities start at 9 a.m., a baby show is scheduled for 10 a.m., and plenty of food will be available throughout the day. The event fills Court Square and stretches from the library to just past the old Fraley’s building on Main Street.
“I think we’re in for a great day and it certainly looks like some good weather,” said Scott Watson of Leadership McMinnville, the organization which plans the Autumn Street Fair.
The extended AccuWeather forecast calls for a mostly sunny day Saturday with temperatures reaching the high 60s.
Main Street promises to be filled with arts and craft vendors along with several booths from nonprofit organizations. The Republican Party says Congressman Scott DesJarlais will be meeting constituents at its booth from noon to 1 p.m.
Alumni from the Citizens Police Academy will be offering a child fingerprint station. Participants will be given a card with their child’s fingerprints to keep in case of emergency. That booth will be near the old Dollar General store.
Local entertainers will perform all day on two stages. Bands such as Thunder Creek, Curved Vinyl, and Midnight Flyer are scheduled to play on the Main Stage.
“We tried to go with all local bands to show off the talent we have right here in Warren County,” said Watson.
