Craft and numerous food vendors, wine tasting and entertainment for children. Location: On the square in Downtown Elmwood. The beauty of the fall colors that so many of us have had in our backyard makes us proud to invite visitors to come and take in the wonders of Mother Nature along the Spoon River. This year we are especially looking forward to seeing our many guests and returning friends as we celebrate the 50th year of the Spoon River Valley Scenic Drive Fall Festival! Thanks to the vision of some dedicated residents who lived along the banks of Spoon River, the Scenic Drive was born. The founding members of the Scenic Drive opened their properties to visitors that first Saturday and Sunday, October 5 and 6, 1968. The many visitors and the beautiful weather encouraged them to have a second weekend. The SRVSD Fall Festival has continued to be held each year during the first two full weekends of October. As you make your way along the many roads that border the Spoon River, we also would like to invite you to visit Elmwood in Peoria County, and Havana River Front Park in Mason County. Both of these communities border Fulton County and have rich history to share as well. Come - enjoy the natural wonders of the Spoon River Valley. Our many SRVSD Associates invite you to enjoy their antiques, artistic wares, beautiful scenery, delicious foods, entertainment and demonstrations. Whether your start on the north, south, east, or west entrances of the Fall Festival, we are sure you will enjoy your visit and we invite you back next year!
