The town of Gore will be hosting its first-ever Autumn Fest on Sept. 25-27.
The three-day festival is sponsored by the Gore Chamber of Commerce. Terry Sloan, the president of Gore’s chamber, says the event is garnering lots of interest around the area.
“We’ve had a lot of people inquire about it,” she said, and announced that vendors will be allowed to set up where they want in Gore and there will be no charge this year. Electricity will be available in a few, but not all, locations, she added.
“We had a lot of people who came and set up last year because the land next to Fin & Feather where the flea market was located was sold, so those vendors who had such thing as potatoes, flower and other items to sell did not have a place to set up.”
“That’s how it ended up in Gore,” Sloan said. “This year we’re giving it a name and … inviting anyone who wants to set up to come out.”
Sloan said that since the sale will be outdoors, masks will not be required, but people are still asked to follow social-distancing recommendations.
Vendors can also set up at the Steve Owens Complex in Webbers Falls at the City Park. The fee to set up in Webbers Falls is $15, Sloan said.
