Founder’s Day 2024

July 15, 2018

A one-day tribute to a town’s heritage has visitors headed to Red Bay in September for a day of free family fun.

Situated under the shade trees of Bay Tree Park, the annual Red Bay Founder’s Fest will be held Saturday September 28th with contests, sidewalk sales and live music.

The day long event kicks off with the Queen’s Train Ride at 8:30 a.m., from the beauty pageant winners that will be held on September 22nd, at Red Bay High School, and live music cranks up at 9:00 a.m.  A contest to see who has the best fried pie with the best tasting, most unusual, and best in the show will take home a cash prize.  There are a variety of contests for festival goers to participate in and include a quilt contest, coloring contest and a photography contest that will be on display at the Weatherford Library.

Additional activities include arts and crafts and the antique car-truck-motorcycle-tractor show.  The Weatherford Library will have books and magazines available for purchase.  The Red Bay Museum will be open for tours . The merchants will offer sidewalk sales, specials, and door prizes throughout the day.

A variety of delicious festival food will be available and another crowd favorite are the giveaways.  Prizes will be awarded to the largest family, longest distance traveled to the event, and youngest and oldest attendees.
