After much consideration, Paulding Fine Arts has decided to cancel Fall Fest 2020 due to all the uncertainties and ever-changing guidelines related to the Corona Virus Pandemic. This was a very difficult decision for us to make. So many of our 2020 activities have gotten cancelled, we did not really want to cancel Fall Fest too, but the safety of all our attendees, vendors, and volunteers was the major contributing factor to this decision.

Please stay safe and we look forward to having a FANTASTIC Fall Fest 2021 on October 9, 2021!

Be on the lookout on our website and Facebook page for information and application early next year.
