Pike County residents and visitors are invited to join the community for Fall Pickin’ Days Oct. 16-17, 2021.
Picture Pittsfield will host more than 40 vendors on the Pike County Courthouse Lawn in Pittsfield. Fall Pickin’ Days on the Square will be held on the Courthouse Lawn from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 17.
“Right now we have 48 vendors lined up,” Picture Pittsfield President Patrick Lamb said on Tuesday.
According to Lamb, the event is shaping up to be Picture Pittsfield’s largest Fall Pickin’ Days to date.
“We have the most vendors that we’ve ever had,” Lamb said. “2019 and 2020 have been down. It’s nice to get back to normal.”
Lamb said, attendees at Fall Pickin’ Days in Pittsfield can expect a wide range of vendors to be present on the courthouse lawn.
“We’ve had a lot of interest from food and craft vendors,” Lamb said.
Lamb added that Picture Pittsfield’s aim in hosting Fall Pickin’ Days on the square is to support businesses – both transient vendors and brick and mortar shops in Pittsfield.
“The goal is to promote businesses, whether big or small,” Lamb said.
