The Arthur Area Association of Commerce has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Arthur Cheese Festival held annually on Labor Day weekend.
Please know that we desperately wanted to put on the festival for several reasons including to provide some normalcy and give our community an event that is so commonly associated with Arthur.
Out of concern for the health and safety of our volunteers, the community, our vendors, etc., we felt this was our only option. There are too many factors that are just out of our control.
We work extremely hard each year to put on a great festival and the AAAoC will look forward to once again hosting the Cheese Festival September 4-6, 2021.
Kick Start To Fall In Arthur
While Labor Day weekend will look a little different this year, Arthur is still the place to be with the shops offering in-store specials on Friday, September 4 and Saturday, September 5.
An “Arthur” Gift Basket drawing (valued over $150.00) plus four other prizes will be given away to five lucky shoppers.
To enter, just get your card stamped at the participating businesses and turn it in at the last store you visit.
Get your fill of shakeups, fries, corn dogs, funnel cakes, mini-doughnuts, sweet tea and more as food truck vendors including Big Al’s Shakeups, Bub’s Doughnuts, Culler’s French Fries, Pig Out, Sweet Tea & Jesus, and Yoder’s Kettle Corn will be downtown on Saturday, September 5 only.
There will also be a Labor Day Weekend Flea Market located at 110 and 111 N. Vine Street. Hours for the flea market will be Friday 12-5pm, Saturday 9am-5pm, Sunday 12-5pm, and Monday 9am-3pm. For more information about the market call 254-5010.
