Blackwater's annual Fall Festival is set to begin on October 13th and last until the 14th. The festival opens up at nine in the morning and will last until 5 in the evening in downtown Blackwater.
This year's festival will consist of some new additions such as the South Fork Regulators who have been performing shootouts all summer. Their performance times will be high noon, 1:30 p.m and the last show of the year will be at 3:00 p.m. There will also be a Native American culture event by Horse Stealing Moon taking place between the shootouts. An old time fiddle player will be at the Bucksnort Trading Post as well. Blacksmith demonstrations will also be provided along with a chuck-wagon viewing.
As of this time the festival is still getting booth entries which will consist of crafts, antiques, collectibles, jewelry and more. Most downtown stores will be open during the festival.
The South Fork Regulators and Native American events will be held only on Saturday. Saturday is scheduled to be the most eventful day.
Blackwater is located three miles north of Interstate 70 at exit 89. The festival admission free.
