Preparations kick into high gear for Loganville’s AutumnFest this weekend

This weekend is Loganville’s turn as AutumnFest preparations kick into high gear. With Piedmont Walton as the major sponsor, crowds are expected to flood downtown Loganville as they do every year for this major event. The community is invited to come on out and enjoy the sights and sounds – and let’s not forget some of the best cuisines around – as we celebrate the eventual arrival of fall in Walton County.

Oct. 19 – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. – Loganville Annual AutumnFest

The City of Loganville’s annual fall festival is the largest event around as more than 175 vendors fill up Main Street. The community is invited to join in as “thousands descend on the downtown area to enjoy live music, performances from local dance and theater groups as well as offerings from food, arts and crafts vendors. The event also includes a Kids Zone with dozens of activities for children.” The festivities begin at 9 a.m. and last until 4 p.m., followed by a free concert at 6 p.m. on the Town Green.

And Walton County cities are not done yet. Next weekend, Good Hope’s Annual Poppy Festival gets in on the celebration as well.

Oct. 26 – 10 a.m. 4 p.m. – Good Hope Annual Poppy Festival

The Good Hope Poppy Festival promises a fun fall day for residents and friends alike in downtown Good Hope. In honor of the Poppy Lady, the Poppy Festival pays tribute to Moina Michael born in Good Hope in 1869. She went on to make the red corn poppy a symbol to honor and raise funds for fallen WWI veterans a tradition that continues today to honor servicemen worldwide.

 A full day of events at the concert includes music by such bands as Briarwood Brothers, Hitmen & Hellcats and Velvet Willow. There will be more than 50 vendors, tasty food and an old fashion hayride, to name a few. Proceeds go towards the local Veteran Project. Moina Michael Poppy Project: All Terrain Chair Initiative
