2021 Sandborn Fall Festival is a GO!!
It is with excitement that we share a recent decision that was made! It was voted at the last department meeting that we are going to continue with the planning for the 2021 Sandborn Fall Festival. Many local festivities have been able to complete their vendor events with no major issues and with our county currently coded yellow, we hope to do the same. While we are somewhat hesitant given that the final decision is all at the discretion of the Knox County Health Department and health officials as we get closer to time, we wanted to go ahead and make every effort possible to still have a family friendly and safe event.
There will be some changes taking place while we attempt to bring things as close to “normal” as we can, including the possibility of requiring masks, etc but we are looking forward to moving forward in this adventure! We hope that you will be a part of our event this year as well.
Thank you all for your patience and understanding in all of this!!
The Sandborn Volunteer Fire Department
What is the story of the Fall Festival?
In 2017, the community of Sandborn was faced with the possibility for the first time of NOT having a festival of any kind. The Sandborn Volunteer Fire Department could not watch this happen and wanted to have some kind of community event and in just 3 short months, with the crew working in harmony, the Sandborn Fall Festival was started. The first festival was October 27 & 28th, 2017. While it was cold and wet, our 35 vendors, firefighters, and community came together and had a good time with bounce houses, live music, good food, and lots of fun.
A Mix for All Ages
In an attempt to get things as close to "normal" as possible, we have something for every age. A great mix of food from the fire department and other vendors will have you coming back for seconds.
Want to be a vendor?
Vendor spacing starts at $30 ($40 with Electric) and an application MUST be submitted as we only allow one Direct Sells/ Multi-level Marking Rep per company.
Sponsorships are available and will be promoted throughout the festival. Please contact us for more information.
