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 is set for Saturday, September 25, 2021 with contests, sidewalks sales, and live music.
The day-long event kicks off with the Queen’s Train Ride at 8:30, from the beauty pageant winners that will be held on September 19, 2021 at the Red Bay High School, and live music cranks up at 9 a.m. A contest to see who has the best fried pie gets underway at 11:00 a.m. Entries with the best tasting and most unusual will take home a cash prize. There are a variety of contests for festival goers to participate in and include a buck dancing contest, quilt contest, coloring contest and a photography contest.
Additional activities include arts and crafts, an antique car-truck-motorcycle-tractor show. The Red Bay Museum will be open for tours and many of 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.
Bay Tree Park is located near 2nd Street in downtown Red Bay. Hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call Jennifer Garrett at 256.356.4473 ext. 3.
