‘I’d Rather Be in Tignall’ Fall Festival starts at 10 a.m. this coming Saturday

Those in the greater Wilkes County area and beyond are invited to attend the 18th annual “I’d Rather be in Tignall” Fall Festival slated for this Saturday, November 10, beginning at 10 a.m. on the old school grounds.

Admission is free to this full day’s worth of family-friendly entertainment, local vendors of every variety, and a smorgasbord of food choices. Returning favorites and even a few new activities will also take place throughout the day.

The festival will kick off with a welcome from Tignall’s mayor, Henry Brown, and Rev. Albert Huyck will give the opening invocation. Following, Brittany Roth will sing the National Anthem.

The entertainment schedule is likewise full for the day, as Jennifer Henderson will perform at 10:30 a.m.; Chris Rogers will perform at 11 a.m.; with Gwin Ware performing at noon; Michael Wynne at 1 p.m.; and Reese Smith performing at 2 p.m., with help from Michael Smith and Anna Smith Howard.

From handmade wreaths, soaps, knitted items, and everything in-between, there’s sure to be something for everyone at this year’s festival. Several kid favorites are also returning for another year of celebration, including the horse, train, and hay rides, along with facepainting and other handson events.

The ever-popular cake walk will also return, and continue until all baked goods are given away. Kids can also enjoy a cupcake walk.

The North Wilkes Steering Committee will once again give out door prizes every hour, and those wishing to participate should sign up to potentially win upon arrival. Brand new T-shirts will also be available for purchase at the booth.

The annual quilt raffle will take place and tickets may be purchased at any time beforehand from the Tignall Homemakers Club.

All are invited to come and experience a fun day at the fall festival in Tignall. Guests are reminded that parking for the festival is located behind Independence Methodist Church.
