The Mt Laurel Fall Festival returns Saturday, October 15, 2016
Save the date for the annual Mt Laurel Fall Festival, happening Saturday, October 15, 2016 from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m!
Celebrate the change of season and stroll the beautiful streets of one of Birmingham’s best neighborhoods.
The Mt Laurel Fall Festival has something for everyone, including shopping the many arts and crafts vendors and farmers in the Town Center; watching live music on the Bryson Square Stage sponsored by Mortgagebanc; and savoring delicious eats at Birmingham food trucks such as Jim N’ Nicks BBQ, Cantina on Wheels, and Off the Hook. Browse handcrafted artwork, home décor items, jewelry, and pottery from local artisans and pick up fresh produce from participating farmers.
In the middle of the Town Center, the Bryson Square Stage will host entertainment for the entire duration of the festival. Special thanks goes to Mortgagebanc for sponsoring the expanded entertainment on the Bryson Square stage.
Starting at 12:45 p.m., Raquel Lily will return to the stage at the Fall Festival; this crowd-favorite features a blend of upbeat pop, rock and jazz sounds. At 3:15 p.m., up and coming country singer and songwriter Jackson Capps will take the stage.
Simply Infused, an olive oil and balsamic tasting room in Mt Laurel, will lead a chef demonstration on stage at noon. During the demonstration, attendees can catch a taste of the weekly chef-led cooking classes at Simply Infused.
At 2:30 p.m., experience the Canine Costume Contest presented by Lucky Dog Groomers. This annual costume contest brings a smile to everyone’s face with hilarious pet costumes and cute pups. Best of all, the contest benefits the Shelby County Humane Society!
The festival will now extend to Mt Laurel’s beautiful Olmsted Park to allow for an expanded Kid’s Park area. Children of all ages will love the hayride, petting zoo, inflatables, and rides in the idyllic Olmsted Park.
From Olmsted Park, festival goers can take a short walk to Mt Laurel’s two homes entered into the Greater Birmingham Association of Home Builder’s Fall Community and Home Tour. As it happens, our Fall Festival coincides with the annual Fall Community and Home Tour, the free city-wide event displaying the best new construction communities in Birmingham.
Discover the quality materials, craftsman styling, and exceptional detail in two of Mt Laurel’s newest floorplans, the Redbud Cottage and the Leatherwood Cottage. Located at 336 Olmsted Street and 324 Olmsted Street, these two homes are part of the new Homes at Olmsted Park collection and are only steps from the action at the Fall Festival. Tour the best of Birmingham real estate during the two weekends of the Fall Community and Home Tour, October 7th – 9th and October 14th- 16th from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
Admission is free to the Mt Laurel Fall Festival and the Fall Community and Home Tour and both events will be held rain or shine. The 50th Anniversary Southern Living Idea House in Mt Laurel will be open for tours during the festival as well. Catch the golf cart shuttle from Olmsted Park to the Idea House.
