To Vendors and Interested Participants:
Thank you so much for your patience as the Jones County Heritage Festival Committee pondered what to do about the festival this weekend!  For the safety of all, we have decided to postpone the festival and reschedule for October 20th.  We realize that there is another event in the county and we are in discussions with that group to see how we can team up and create a win/win situation!  We also realize that some of you will not be able to participate on this date and we apologize for that but in these situations we know we cannot accommodate everyone.  The truth of the matter is that the festival has not encountered challenges due to a hurricane since 2011 and this is our 9th year, for that we are very thankful.
After the storm passes, we will contact you with further details.  Meantime, stay safe, take care of your families and pray that Florence does not create the impact that is being forecast.
Thank you for your continued support,

Local talent acts will be featured on the “big stage” so you can sit a spell and enjoy some good food and the show! The day is filled with wholesome family activities, locally prepared foods and fun. The Brock Mill which was originally built in the mid 1700’s is open for tours as well as the mill pond is open for canoeing and kayaking. A vintage car show will feature early models of cars, trucks and tractors and the “Little Miss Heritage Festival Pageant” will feature girls 5 to 14 years of age.
