Fall is here and it's time for the 24th annual Patagonia Fall Festival, a celebration of art, music and fun. The small town of Patagonia invites the whole family to come enjoy some cooler weather in the town park, where the festivities are held. Shoppers will find authentic gifts, trinkets, food, art, and more.
“This festival is truly one of the best small-town celebrations anywhere, and has been growing and getting better with each year of juried artists and great food vendors,” said Lars Marshall, the marketer for the celebration. Marshall has attended the festival for the past 11 years.
There will be more than 140 booths of arts and crafts, jewelry, fashion, furniture/household creations, gourmet food and non-profit and informational exhibitors from all over the United States.
Here are just a few examples of the numerous exhibitors that will be participating in the Fall Festival, which runs Oct. 12-14:
* Sunshine Specialty Food will be selling salsas, spreads, gift bags and recipes.
* Creek Ranch Design will be selling turquoise and coral jewelry.
* Copper Anza Furnishings will be selling metal benches, tables, lamps and furniture.
A lineup of musicians will play on the Gazebo stage performing a variety of genres, ranging from the band Americano—playing electronic/dubstep, to the band Haywire—playing jazz, rock and classical.
