FRANKLIN, N.C. – A revitalized Holly Springs Community Development Club is hosting its first “Hello Holly Springs Fall Festival” and live concert. The free family event will feature Nashville-based singer songwriter Steff Mahan.
The festival and concert will take place October 30, from noon to 3 p.m. on the grounds of the Holly Springs Community Center at 2720 Cat Creek Rd.
The festival is a family, Halloween-themed event including a Treasure Chest hunt, face painting, candy for the kids and a visit from Sweet Caroline’s Mobile Ice Cream Shoppe from 1:30 – 2:00 p.m. Hot dogs and baked goods will be for sale.
“The goal of the festival is to give Holly Springs and Franklin-area residents an opportunity to enjoy a beautiful fall day with incredible music and fun for the kids, while introducing our neighbors to the work of the Holly Springs Community Development Club,” said Lora Barham, president of the organization. “We want as many people as possible to enjoy the free event while learning about our local charity work and efforts to maintain the historic community center here.”
The Holly Springs community center, a former two-room school house, was built in 1916.
Festival goers will experience the music of Nashville’s Steph Mahan. She has five albums to her credit and is often described as an alt-country star whose music is an Americana mix of rock, roots, folk and country. Billboard magazine said Mahan’s shows are an “entertaining can’t miss performance.” And the Nashville City Paper wrote, “To say it best, Steff is simply wicked cool!”
