A Texas Size Celebration...43rd Annual FAIR ON THE SQUARE

Huntsville, Texas….380 booths of arts, crafts and food are sure to please festival patrons who make the drive to Huntsville each year on the first Saturday in October to attend the annual Fair on the Square. The setting is the charming historic downtown square nestled among the pine trees of east Texas and the area merchants that have set up shop permanently around the Courthouse lawn. For eight continuous hours, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., on the first Saturday in October the streets will be closed to traffic to allow vendors the opportunity to sell everything from arts and crafts, jewelry, apparel, toys, yard art and more. This is a great place to begin your holiday shopping or to find those one of kind trinkets and treasures for yourself.

Experience real “fair” food at the Food Court as vendors prepare some of the best mouthwatering temptations in Texas. Savor the flavor of fajitas to funnel cakes, barbecue to kettlekorn and everything in between. You can count on an ice cold lemonade, sweet tea, old fashioned soda or a frosty root beer float to quench your thirst!

Kids will have hours of fun at the Kids Korner! Snow cones, petting zoo, pony rides, balloon creations, archery, sand art, face painting, giant mural, and more are sprinkled throughout the park. The bungee run and giant slide also entertain those who are extremely adventurous.

Cool shade is provided under the big tent in the Beer Garden. Cool beverages will refresh you while you listen to the extraordinary talent of two local bands on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Take a stroll through the wine tasting tent, the Wine Knot, and enjoy the likes of 10 Texas Vineyards. Entrance fee is only $10 and may be purchased at the event. A souvenir wine glass, wine tastings and food pairings will be included.

Classic Cars on display let you take a peek back in time as you enjoy these classic automobiles provided by the Huntsville Cruisers Auto Club.

A Pre-Fair Celebration Street Concert kicks off the annual celebration as crowds gather on Friday night under the beer garden tent. This year the gates will open at 8 and Cody Joe Hodges will take the stage at 9:00 p.m. until 12midnight. Entrance is FREE!

We invite you to experience this Texas size celebration and see for yourself what keeps bringing back an estimated 15,000 visitors each year. With FREE admission, great shopping, stellar entertainment and fabulous food, this is an event that is NOT TO BE MISSED! Mark your calendars for the first Saturday in October EVERY YEAR!
