Autumnfest 2020 - CANCELLED

SOUTHERN PINES – Southern Pines Recreation & Parks and the Arts Council of Moore County announce that the annual Autumnfest scheduled for October 3rd has been canceled this year due COVID-19 public safety concerns.

We hope you will join Southern Pines Recreation for an Autumnfest VIRTUAL 5K competition. VIRTUAL ENTERTAINMENT will be offered by the Arts Council. Please watch for details.

Autumnfest was first held in 1978 and is one of Moore County’s largest annual festivals, bringing thousands of people to the one-block area of the Southern Pines Downtown Park on the first Saturday of each October. The festival features live music and entertainment, arts & craft booths, food, a 5K Race, a 1- mile Fun Run & Health Walk, youth sprint races, and other children’s activities.

We hope you will plan to join us for the 2021 AUTUMNFEST on Saturday, October 2, 2021. Save the date and we look forward to seeing then!
