For the 30th Annual Mayhaw Festival, we will have a 5/10k run/walk with medals and prizes, 100 vendors offering food, plants, arts and crafts, jewelry, services and hosts of other items. Tours of the Newton House and Gallery of History are given with living historians re-enacting what life was like from different eras. Car shows, kid zones, dog parks and all of the elements of a fair and carnival will be available. We also have two stages and live music all day long.
