Hometown “FestiFall” Invites Community to Come Together on Oct. 9

After cancellations the past two Memorial Days due to Covid-19, the Round Hill Hometown Festival returns on Saturday, Oct. 9, as the Round Hill “FestiFall.”

Taking Covid precautions into account, the FestiFall will feature family-friendly activity stations spread around Town.

“The FestiFall is a chance for us to come together as a community to meet our neighbors old and new and to celebrate our small town,” said Mayor Scott Ramsey. “All events will be outside and socially-distanced in order to gather responsibly.”

The day will begin at 8:30 a.m. with the traditional 5k race through town, starting and ending at Round Hill Elementary School, followed by a half-mile kids’ fun run, also at the school. Registration is online at www.hometownfestival.org.

Plans are still being finalized for the rest of the day, but look for music, food, lawn games and other socially-distanced activities to be held at the Round Hill Town Park, Round Hill Baptist Church and the Round Hill United Methodist Church.

Possible activities include face painting, sidewalk chalk art and paint-your-own pottery from the Round Hill Arts Center, a town-wide scavenger hunt, an antique car show, bake sale, petting zoo and more.

Tammy’s Diner will be serving lunch hot off the grill and the Round Hill Grocery will offer wrapped sandwiches and samples of exotic meats; other food items will be available for purchase as well.

Activities will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., weather and Covid conditions permitting.

Fall in Love with Round Hill!

The Round Hill Hometown Festival Committee is excited to announce that we will be holding the FIRST-EVER Round Hill Hometown FestiFall on Saturday, October 9, 2021. Like the spring Festival, the FestiFall will feature a 5k, parade, and music in the park — and a few other fun fall activities to add some autumnal atmosphere! We are all looking forward to coming together to celebrate our community and to FALL IN LOVE WITH ROUND HILL all over again!

2021 Festival Postponed Until Fall

Due to the ongoing impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organizers of the Round Hill Hometown Festival have made the difficult decision to postpone the spring festival until later in the fall.
The Hometown Festival is tentatively rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 9, 2021. Planning will begin in mid-summer. Email info@hometownfestival.org to volunteer to help plan the event.
The Hometown Festival’s traditional Memorial Ceremony to honor veterans will be held virtually over Memorial Day weekend.

Til next year…

The Round Hill Hometown Festival committee has voted unanimously to cancel this year’s Festival (which was postponed until Oct. 10). While it saddens us to have to do so, we feel it is the only responsible decision at this time. We look forward to the day when we can all get together safely and celebrate our community again.

Save the Date!

Due to the uncertainty surrounding the Corona virus, the 18th Annual Hometown Festival is postponed until Columbus Day weekend, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 10. We will all be looking forward to The Best Day of the Year in Round Hill…just a few months later than usual.
