MELROSE ARTS & CRAFTS FESTIVAL POSTPONING TO NEXT WEEKEND OCTOBER 17-18

The 46th annual Melrose Plantation Arts & Crafts Festival has been postponed until next weekend. The festival will now be held on Saturday, Oct. 17 and Sunday, Oct. 18.

The festival was originally scheduled to be held this weekend but the predicted path of Hurricane Delta has forced organizers to change plans. “The safety of our vendors, workers, and visitors is of the utmost concern for us,” says Heather Tichenor, director of Melrose Plantation. “The potential for property damage is high, especially when the storm is forecast to hit our region during our scheduled set up and the first day of an outdoor event.”

Festival hours and ticket prices remain unchanged. On Saturday, Oct. 17, the festival will run from 9 am – 5 pm. On Sunday, Oct. 18, festival hours are 10 am – 4 pm. Admission is $5 for everyone ages 12 & up; $2 for kids ages 6-11; and free for kids 5 and under. For more information and event updates, visit melroseplantation.org.
