The Annual Salisbury Fall Festival is one of the longest running festivals in the region. Throughout the weekend there's something for everyone to enjoy. Plan to share in the fun of a hometown celebration offered by the churches, organizations, and businesses in our community. Returning this year will be the Quilt Show at the Congregational Church, the blueberry pancakes at St. John's, the Volunteer Ambulance Service's Pancake Breakfast on Sunday morning, and SWSA's Brew Ski Beer Fest on Sunday afternoon. Peter Becks Village Store will again sponsor the 14th Annual Scarecrow Contest. Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite scarecrows that line Main Street. Wander along Main Street to find attic treasures, global crafts, home-make baked goods, plus previously-loved books, jewelry, and clothing. Look for The Artisans selling hand-made jewelry, crafts, and other items. Visit the Historical Society's art show "Dark Hollow and Beyond” with oils and watercolors by local artist Tom Key. For lunch, stop by the hot dog tent for some All-American treats or enjoy Central American specialties and Greek pastries. Pick up a delicious apple from the SVNA booth. Visit the local shops for wonderful gift items, clothing, home furnishings, flowers, food, and wine. On Friday evening, plan to attend The Salisbury Forum at Hotchkiss. Dr. Richard Elmore, Professor at Harvard, will present “Only Three Ways to Improve Performance in Schools.” For a complete schedule of times and locations, visit www.salisburyfallfestival.org.
