Appropriate for all ages
With three covered bridges still in existence, Easley, Horton Mill, and Swann Covered Bridges, Blount County carries the title of Covered Bridge Capital of Alabama, and as a tribute to its roots, a one-day festival is held every year in Oneonta. Held second Saturday in October, the Covered Bridge Arts and Music Fest offers free family fun including a guided cover bridge tour, an arts and crafts show, a quilt show, a car show, a Kid’s Zone, live music and food.
The highlight of the annual event is the Arts and Crafts Show located in downtown Oneonta. Throughout the day, festivalgoers can peruse hundreds of vendors selling an assortment of homemade items, handmade jewelry, artwork, wood creations, and more. As festivalgoers shop for unique gifts and treasures, live music fills the air. For the early risers, the Blount County Children’s Center will host its annual pancake breakfast from 7 to 10 a.m. at Lester Memorial United Methodist Church, located at 108 Third Avenue East.
