Q:  Do you pay for parking?

A:  NO! All parking provided by the festival is absolutely free.

Q:  Is there an admission for the Fest?

A:  Yes. As you know, the Fall Festival is a major fundraiser for Keep Sevier Beautiful, a nonprofit organization.  The biggest income stream has been through donations as people park their cars.  Unfortunately, there are neighboring private properties which have taken advantage of the KSB Festival and opened their own parking lots (usually for a $5 charge).  We estimate this to be a loss of around $5,000 or more to KSB during the Festival days.  In an effort to keep the donations channeled directly to KSB, this year we have opted to have FREE parking and small admission fee/donation.  The admission fee will never be more than $10 ($3 per person, but never more than $10 for a whole carload of folks.)

Q:  So, there's an admission fee.  How much is it for me to take my family of five?

A:  Admission will never exceed $10 per family.  

Q:  What are the hours of the Fest?

A:  On Friday & Saturday, the Festival will be open from 10 am - 6 pm.  On Sunday, we will be open from 10 am - 4 pm.

Q:  What time is the Miss Fall Fest pageant?

A:  It's at 6:00 pm, Friday, Oct. 15th.    For more information, see the Pageant Event page. 

Q:  May I bring my pet?

A:  Yes!  The Festival is pet friendly.  However, we do ask that you bring something to cleanup after your pet and that all animals are on a leash.
