Harvest Festival this weekend

This weekend Main Street Toccoa will celebrate the 41st annual Harvest Festival in Downtown Toccoa.

The event will offer a collection of craft and food vendors and entertainment throughout the weekend.

In addition to the craft and food vendors, the festival will feature entertainment options, ranging from music stages to a children’s “choo choo” train.

Families will even be able to climb a large rock wall in Downtown Toccoa.

The primary entertainment stage, featured at the intersection of Doyle and Sage Streets, will be a covered stage and will promote several professional music groups.

The second stage, located at the end of Downtown near Regions Bank, will feature Toccoa’s numerous local talents.

On Saturday, the festival’s live entertainment will begin at 10 a.m. with the Toccoa Falls College Choir, followed by the Toccoa Falls Singing Men.

At 11 a.m. The Dance Studio will be performing followed by a performance from Rhythm Academy.

Shoal Creek Bluegrass Band will perform at 1 p.m. and the afternoon will wrap up with a performance by Ron Hartzog at 4 p.m.

Entertainment will run from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. Sunday.

Throughout the weekend there will be many children activities including a bungee jump, Papa’s Little Choo Choo, Monster Water Balls and several inflatables.

The Harvest Festival is an annual tradition that not only ushers in the cooler weather of the Fall season, but more importantly, brings together families in Toccoa for an exciting and family-friendly event that has been successfully held for the last 41 years of Toccoa’s history.
