Huntsville welcomes the arrival of Autumn with annual downtown festival

Looking for a place to take the whole family for fun, food and adventure?  If so then we have the perfect solution…the 43rd Annual Fair on the Square held on Saturday, October 7.  Grab the kids and head to the historic downtown square right in the center of Huntsville.

Many unique items, some hand crafted, will help shoppers get ready for the Christmas and fall holidays.  Jewelry, home décor, apparel, and many more treasures can be found by both vendors and the merchants on the downtown square and in the Midway Plaza. 

The popular Kids Korner is a haven of fun for children of all ages!  The Kids Korner includes a giant slide, balloon artist, petting zoo, bungee run, monster mural, moon walk, face painting, archery station and free arts and crafts projects!

Need a break from shopping? Then head to the Food Court to taste fair specialties. Homemade root beer floats, freshly squeezed lemonade and sweet tea will quench your thirst while you munch on fried pickles, kettle korn, corn dogs, barbecue and more!

From 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. listen to the tunes of two local bands as they play on the stage in the Beer Garden.  Spend the afternoon enjoying an adult beverage or sipping a soft drink while listening to some great Texas Country Music!

Come join us in the wine tasting Area called The Wine Knot, located off of University Avenue between 12th and 13th Street. This new attraction was added to the festivities in 2015.   Join patrons as they sip wine from many Texas Vineyards at this quaint Wine Tasting area, taste many delicious appetizers from local home town restaurants and enjoy music from Shane Barnhill and Billy Hillman duo.  The following vineyards will be  there:  Bernhardt Winery, Froggy Wines, Granny Muffin, LLC, Kissing Tree Vineyards, Landon Winery, Lone Hen Winery, Los Pinos Ranch Vineyards, Messina Hof Winery, Perrine Winery and Red Road Vineyard.  Be sure to stop by and sip and then purchase a full glass or a bottle to take home and enjoy later!
