Due to the concerns of COVID-19, we are actively working to keep our community safe while providing a fun experience for everybody. Therefore, the Kernersville Chamber of Commerce has decided to postpone its annual Amanzi Marble and Granite Spring Folly to September 25, 26, and 27. Our Spring “Fall-y” will still have many of its community’s favorite aspects, so be sure to mark your calendars and join us for the fun!
Tons of logistics went into the live music, rides, civic groups, commercial vendors, arts and crafts vendors, Heritage Square, and so much more to ensure that the Folly will include past favorites and exciting new experiences as well.
So what are some things that you can expect at the 2020 Spring Folly? We will still have live music on two stages, amusement park rides Friday through Sunday in Harmon Park, all of your favorite vendors will be present Friday and Saturday, and this year we are introducing a Beer Garden! For more details including who will be headlining, times for performances and other side performances such as the magic show, clown shows and more, please be sure to “like” our Facebook page and visit our website KernersvilleSpringFolly.com closely for any pertinent updates!
On Friday, September 25 at 6 pm the festival begins. You can expect commercial and arts and craft vendors welcoming you on East Mountain Street and North Main Street. Rides and concessions will be in full swing in Harmon Park and our Kernersville civic groups will be ready to feed you and the whole family. Later on in the evening, the Main Stage and an additional stage will host various bands. Our Friday Night Headliner will perform after a greeting from some of those who helped make the Folly possible. On Saturday, September 26, visit the vendors, Heritage Square on West Mountain Street, a Kids Zone full of free entertainment for every age and so much more. Sunday, September 27 you can still enjoy music at the Gazebo located in Harmon Park and the rides will be operating for your amusement.
We would like to take the time to thank not only our dedicated sponsors but also everybody involved that have been so accommodating regarding the new date changes. For a festival that hosts approximately 30,000 people each year, we have hundreds of moving parts that require quick thinking, collaboration, and understanding. Without each of you, this festival would not have been possible.
If you are interested in becoming a vendor for the Spring Folly or if you have any questions, please reach out to Molly Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope to see you and your family at our first Amanzi Marble and Granite Spring Folly in the Fall on September 25, 26 and 27 in Downtown Kernersville!
