UPDATE: We are still on 100%!!! (READ BELOW)
St Croix Falls, WI Community AutumnFest Celebration Still On 100% Despite Gov't Shutdown
Saturday's St Croix Falls Overlook AutumnFest Activities
and Art Fair Moving to Public Library Grounds: Rain Expected
As a proactive measure
to keep the SCF AutumnFest Event enjoyable and shielded from rain, event organizers have moved Saturday's scheduled Overlook
entertainment programs, The Art Fair and Food Vendors to the SCF Public Library Grounds.
Mammoth Gravel Bike Ride, Festival Theatre show and Pie Eating Contest remain at their scheduled places and times.
"The Library is just a Wonderful spot for the planned activities," says event coordinator
Woody McBride. "Inside will be the entertainment programs and outside the Library Plaza will be buzzing with action all
day - live music, the Farmers Market and the Falls Chamber of Commerce Arts & Crafts Fair."
weather forecast for Saturday in St Croix Falls shows an 80% chance of rain, wind and probable thunderstorms.
"We have great artists from all over the region on their way to St Croix Falls tomorrow," says Falls
Chamber Art Fair Director Catherine Veith-Bruno. "And moving our campus to the St Croix Falls Public Library plaza makes
sense en lieu of the forecast - it is charming, it has facilities and festival goers can duck out of the rain if need be"
The St Croix Falls community fall celebration AutumnFest is still on 100%, despite minor rescheduling of two
DNR events due to the US Government Shutdown. "The DNR has been very accommodating with advancing the possibility of
the shut down," says McBride. "We knew that we would take over some of their programs that day if there was a shut
down - and a couple of their programs are simply rescheduled tba."
The 100/70/30 mile Mammoth
Gravel Classic Bike Ride will launch as planned from The Overlook or (if needed the Cyclova XC shop just 1/2 block away.)
