This past weekend brought the 28th Annual Acorn Festival to downtown Four Oaks. The festival consisted of over 40 vendors, children’s activities, food, entertainment, and plenty of fellowship. The festival, which was made possible by many local sponsors and contributors, brought large crowds to the Four Oaks area. The annual Acorn Festival is an important opportunity to bring together our community but also to support our local businesses. Several Main St. businesses felt they had an increase in traffic due to the crowd brought to Main St. by the antique car show. Some businesses who are Chamber Members used their complimentary vendor table in Barbour’s Grove Park while other’s chose to remain at their store fronts to greet customers. We are excited to see what future events hold for our community and for our area businesses. If you have any feedback about the Acorn Festival or recommendations for future events please contact Amber England, Chamber Director, at 910-963-4004.
