Waynetown Street Festival set for Saturday


WAYNETOWN — Waynetown’s parade of five annual festivals kicks off at 9 a.m. and will run until 6 p.m. Saturday with the Second Annual Street Festival. The event is in the downtown and will feature more than 70 craft and merchandise booths, plus a food court.

“Last year’s inaugural event went over so well, we had to do it again,” organizer Robin Pirtle said. “We have most of the same vendors back plus some who heard about last year and wanted to be a part of the festival this year.”

The food court will provide seating and a variety of foods from ice cream to pulled pork sandwiches and more.

Waynetown businesses also will be open, including the art gallery The Nest, Gregg’s Corner Market and Waynetown Antiques. The popular Noel’s Gift Shop at 302 E. Washington St. will be open all weekend.

The town is also having a Community-wide Garage Sale beginning at 8 a.m. Saturday.

The Waynetown Merchants Association will sell raffle tickets for a Henry Rifle to be given away at the town’s annual Fish Fry in September.

Two free $100 gasoline cards will be given away at the Waynetown Christian Church booth. There will be a guessing game and a Bible Trivia game to determine the card winners.

Waynetown Merchants Association, Waynetown Volunteer Fire Department, the Town of Waynetown and Busse Excavating are providing assistance to the festival this year.

The other town festivals are scheduled for 2022 are as follows: June 25 Freedom Festival, Sept. 15-17 Fish Fry, Oct. 8 Oktoberfest and Dec. 3 Christmas in the Park.
