Two Arts & Crafts Festivals Weekends in McGregor this October

McGregor will be at the peak of fall beauty for not one, but two arts and crafts festivals this October. Head to McGregor on October 6th and 7th and/or October 13th and 14th from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Artist and vendor booths will fill the streets surrounding Triangle Park and inside Backwoods Bar and Grill.

A wide variety of artistic creations will be on display from trendy clothing, creative jewelry, and decorative home décor. All of the art on display is handmade by local artists. Speak to the artist directly and feel good about supporting their work. This fun festival is the perfect opportunity to get an early start on shopping for the upcoming holidays. Functional pieces of art are available at any budget. Live music will be in the air as you shop and visit.

Enjoy a brand new addition to this year's festivities with a baking contest on Saturday, the 6th at 9 a.m. Have your own deliciously homemade pies ready for the judging, which begins at 11 a.m.

When your stomach starts to growl, Backwoods Bar and Grill has the best barbeque ribs around. They may be messy, but they’re finger-lickin' good! Prefer a sandwich? Dig into the tasty smoked pulled pork. The barbeque here is not to be missed.

Enjoy the breathtaking scenic views of Clayton County during both of McGregor's arts and crafts this October!
