Conyers, GA—The 41st Annual Olde Town Conyers Fall Festival takes place on Saturday, Oct. 16, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., in the streets of historic Olde Town Conyers.

What began as a fundraiser by the Rockdale County Historical Society in 1980 to help fund operational costs for the Depot (which now houses the Conyers Welcome Center) and Old Jail Museum, has become an annual fall tradition for Conyers residents and neighboring communities. While the historical society still exists, the organization turned over the coordination of the festival to the city of Conyers in 2008.

“More than 100 vendors are expected to participate this year,” said Events Coordinator Sandy Daniels. “We’ve had a great response from exhibitors and organizations who are eager to celebrate the fall season in Olde Town.”

The festival will feature live entertainment and a costume contest for kids and pets with prizes at 12 p.m. on the stage at the Conyers Depot on Railroad Street. Arts and crafts vendors, food vendors, children’s activities, and a number of local non-profit organizations eager to share their individual missions to serve Conyers and Rockdale County will line the streets.

The Conyers Police Department and Rockdale County Fire Department and Sheriff’s Department will be on hand for fun safety activities. The Conyers Police Department is also sponsoring a Scarecrow Contest. Scarecrows created by various businesses and organizations will be on display the week leading up to the festival and the day of the festival. On October 16, festival attendees are encouraged to monetarily support the scarecrow they like best for the chance to be named “People’s Choice” of the contest. All proceeds collected support the CPD’s Shop with a Cop holiday program for community children.

The Children’s Business Fair of Conyers sponsored by High Achiever’s Academy will take place at the Olde Town Pavilion in Randal S. Mills City Center Park on Main Street during the Olde Town Fall Festival from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. The Children’s Business Fair of Conyers features youth entrepreneurs selling their wares and believes that children, when allowed to unleash their creativity, can change the world.

No overnight parking is allowed on Friday, Oct. 15, to allow for vendor setup on the day of the festival

Admission and parking for the festival are free.
