GCA's Fall Festival and Holiday Market

The Upcountry

The Upcountry

A Celebration of Creativity, Community & Commerce. Join us for the 12th annual GCA's Fall Festival & Holiday Market! We are a family-friendly, community-focused event held on Nov 6, 2021, 10:00am – 3pm, featuring 65 vendors and concessions. Event entrance is free of charge, but donations for education are appreciated! Bring the whole family & plan to stay! We also recommend having cash on hand, some vendors will accept credit/debit cards, but not all. Pets are allowed if on a leash. COVID Update: -Sadly, we will not be able to have our KidZone this year. Everyone we talked with agreed that there are too many "touch-points" in this portion of the event to keep it safe. -We will have a limited number of vendors to allow for more spacing between each vendor. This will allow vendors to have three sides to their displays and ample space for customers to social distance. For this reason, we can accommodate our current vendors but will not be able to accept new vendors. -We will strongly encourage masks and social distancing among vendors and visitors. -We will take extra measures to sanitize bathrooms, common areas, and the parking shuttle. -Our famous Sweet Shop will package all items individually before the event. -Food vendors will be required to wear masks and gloves. -More information at: - Check out our outstanding vendors at:
