The Leadership McMinnville class of 2022 has been selected and work on priority No. 1 is already under way.

“It might be a little early, but we’re already starting to think about the Autumn Street Fair,” said Chamber of Commerce president Don Vizi.

The Chamber oversees Leadership McMinnville which is the organization which plans the Autumn Street Fair. Last year’s Autumn Street Fair was canceled due to COVID concerns.

Leadership McMinnville is a way for participants to learn more about our community. Those involved in the class take tours of a number of different businesses and government offices. This includes a trip to Bologna Day, which is held at the Tennessee General Assembly in Nashville and gives participates a chance to see state government in action.

“It’s a great way to get involved and to really learn more about Warren County,” said Vizi.

Organizing the Autumn Street Fair in downtown McMinnville is a time-consuming project involving some 200 vendors set up along Main Street and Court Square. This year’s Autumn Street Fair is set for Saturday, Oct. 1.
