Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive Fall Festival

Home  Tourist  Vendors  History  |  Contact Us 

The Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive Associates has provided each contributor (vendors, merchants and demonstrators) with a large red and white logo sign. This contributor’s sign shows that person or business has registered with the Associates and is a LEGITIMATELY REGISTERED VENDOR for the Fall Festival. It is the financial support of these contributors which makes the Fall Festival possible. The costs of the Drive’s Fall Festival include advertising, promotion, sanitation, information, office costs, entertainment, and various other costs supported by those who contribute. Visitors are asked to patronize only those vendors displaying the red and white contributor’s sign pictured to the left. These logos will help you to identify the legitimate stops.

The Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive welcomes vendors and crafters with quality displays. Acceptable product lines are to be family-oriented and in keeping with the values that are traditional for rural America.

The Scenic Drive Associates ask vendors to dress in turn-of-century attire and to help reflect the rich history of our Spoon River Country.

The Fall Festival consists of sanctioned sites and areas throughout Fulton County, IL and along the 100 miles plus of our Scenic Drive routes. Each site is managed locally by an area representative or site manager.  Vendors should contact the representatives and/or site managers (listed on the sites page) at their location of preference and make local arrangements with the individual site for booth space and payment of local space fees.

We encourage vendors who are considering the Fall Festival for the first time carefully look over our full website for information about the Fulton County Spoon River Country and the Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive Fall Festival.
