The town of Mentone, Alabama will host its first annual Mentone Fall Festival, a single-day arts and crafts event. The event will be October 21 from 10 am to 4 pm (CT).
The festival will take place at the historic campus of Moon Lake Elementary School, now known as Moon Lake Village. Moon Lake Elementary School was built in 1928 and was closed in 2021.
After its closing the Board of Education deeded the campus to the town of Mentone, which then created Moon Lake Village, a space for shops, crafts workspaces, and entertainment events.
However, the school building is badly in need of repairs, and all funds raised at the festival will be used by the town for its restoration.
The festival will host dozens of vendors and present entertainment all day at its adjacent amphitheater. Food will also be available on site.
Admission to the festival is free, but there is a $5 per vehicle parking fee.
Local area shops, restaurants, galleries, and parks will be welcoming festival-goers to Mentone all weekend long.
Mentone Inn will be hosting a kick-off concert on Friday evening.
