Edinburg Ole' Time Festival
September 16th, 17th & 18th, 2016
The Edinburg Ole Time Festival, which began in 1981, gets underway the third Friday each September with a lively Opening Ceremony, with activity going on for two more days.
As a family-oriented weekend Festival, the town comes alive with crafters, food vendors, free entertainment, a Children's Festival, demonstrators, an Art Show, a display of antique cars & tractors, authors signing books, storytellers, food of all types and more. The Town's quaint shops and restaurants will be open all weekend as well.
Friday evening's Opening Ceremony is followed by a community sing-a-long, a classic string-band jam session with square & line dancing in the street and Karaoke at the VFW.
Saturday gets started with an early morning all-you-want breakfast of eggs, sausage, pancakes and more. That will give you just enough time to take part in the 4K Fun Run/Walk. Festival goers start lining up early for the annual sale of commemorative pottery at the Information Stand. The "March Through Town" parade kicks off at 1:00 PM.
The Fire Department has a community dinner on Saturday afternoon and there is square dancing in the evening.
Old-Time Church Services start off the Sunday activities. In addition to all of the regular Festival activities, there will be an Old-Timer's Baseball Game at the Town Park, followed by the Bed Race on Piccadilly Street and the annual Duck Race at 4:30 PM at the bridge. The Festival closes with an old fashioned Hymn Sing at St. John's Methodist Church.
The Edinburg Ole Time Festival is sponsored by the Edinburg Heritage Foundation and the Town of Edinburg.
Applications are available on the web site for: Patrons, Crafters, Artists, Fun Run/Walk participants and Car Show entrants.
