Autumn Leaves vendor spots sold out

The Greater Mount Airy Chamber of Commerce has sold all of its vendor spaces for the 2018 Autumn Leaves Festival.

Chamber officials said they were continuing to field calls regarding space availability, but all spots are committed. This includes craft, food and commercial vendors.

In addition, all of the slots for entertainment and bands on the festival stage have also been filled. At the 2018 festival, there will be more than 200 vendor spaces.

The 52nd Annual Autumn Leaves Festival will take place Oct. 12-14 in downtown Mount Airy.

“This is the largest public event held in Mount Airy and Surry County and attracts over 200,000 people each year,” the chamber said in a written statement. The festival features handmade crafts, great food and live old time and bluegrass music.
