The Broadway Autumn Festival was created to highlight what our local businesses have to offer, and to bring in shoppers from out of the area. It has long been the first Fall Festival in the area – kicking off a great season for other festivals in Bridgewater, Elkton, New Market and Dayton.
The Autumn Festival has always been very community-focused with profits going directly back to the community through scholarships to local Broadway High School seniors.
“Providing scholarships to local students has been a top priority for our Council and the newly combined festival will allow us to continue the strong tradition of helping students further their education and also give us future opportunities to expand the scholarship program. We look forward to kicking off the festival season with a premier event that will continue to create opportunities for our local businesses, vendors and BHS students”, says Sharon Krantz, Chairman of the Broadway-Timberville Business Council.
This is a continued combination of the previous Autumn Days and Fall Festivals held on separate dates in September and October. There is now only one fall festival in Broadway each year, the second Saturday in September.
The combination of the two allows us to organize a larger event and share resources, creating a better experience for shoppers.
