A new fall festival is coming to North Augusta for Halloween weekend.

North Augusta Forward, a downtown business organization, is hosting the event from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 30 on West Pine Grove Avenue. A concert event will be held at Cavalier’s Coffeehouse off Georgia Avenue in Jackson Square from 5 to 8 p.m.

Up to 40 vendors will be in attendance with an artisan market, church trunk or treating and kids activities all day long.

Jenny Elliott, a member of the North Augusta Merchants Alliance and owner of Sweet Fig Market and Shoppe 3130, is helping put on the event. The idea came after the cancellation of Jack O’Lantern Jubilee by the city due to COVID-19 concerns.

“It’s super family friendly, and it’s just a great time to get out, to enjoy some time outdoors,” Elliott said. “…This is just a much smaller festival that’s still an opportunity to get out.”

The event will have live music performances by Tanner Duckworth, Jason Sheppard and the Mason Jars. There also will be cheer performances by the Panthers and Yellow Jackets as well as a theatre performance of "Grunch" by the Augusta Jr. Players.

Kids can also participate in a Halloween costume contest during the day.

“We’re excited that people are getting out and spending time in the downtown area and we hope to see lots of people out,” Elliott said.

Attendance is free. For more information, visit northaugustaforward.org.
