Art on the Square event

To celebrate the art found in Jefferson, we are planning our First annual Art on the Square, Jefferson. The fair will be held Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019, from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The venue is the historic Greene County Courthouse grounds. Exhibitors will have easy access to the area and parking is close by. Music, food, and drinks are planned to enhance the event. We chose this weekend to coincide with Deal’s Orchard Fall Festival and the Red Barn Craft Sale. This long-standing event brings thousands of people to our area, and we want to encourage folks to enjoy all we have to offer in Jefferson. Deal’s is enthusiastically supporting and promoting our event!
