The McIntosh 1890s Festival is scheduled from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Come rain or shine, the McIntosh 1890s Festival will set up shop from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday with 250 vendors selling crafts, antiques, food goods and more in the Victorian downtown.  

The festival shuts down Avenue F and G and some downtown side streets, with US 441 just a block away. Admission is free and the festival includes live music from The Brije, various; Mr. Aullie, Blues; Front Porch Backsteppers, Blue Grass; Leah Oxendine, Folk; and Pete Enwall, Country.   

Last year, the weather veered to the cold, rainy side of the spectrum. So far, Saturday’s forecast calls for a partly cloudy day with a high of 84 degrees and only a 15% chance of rain.
