Orange Street Festival and Gordonsville Fall Festival

These two fall fairs are coming up soon.  We’ll have a tent set up at both to do outreach, provide candidate information and literature and generally show people that there is an alternative.

The Orange Street Festival is put on by the Orange Chamber of Commerce and is free and open to the public, featuring live music, interesting vendors and great food. The Orange Festival is from 9AM to 6PM next Saturday, September 9, 2017 all along Main Street in Orange; we expect our tent to be in the same location as previous years.

The Gordonsville Fall Festival is put on by the Gordonsville Volunteer Fire Department and proceeds help support the volunteer fire company.  The Festival takes place from 9AM to 4PM on October 7, 2017 at the Fireman’s Fairgrounds.

Please drop by to say hello while visiting both of these fun events.
