The annual Depot Day festival is the second Saturday in October. Hosted by the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, it is one of Gainesville’s signature events and Depot Day welcomes both local and out of town festival goers to our historic downtown. Live entertainment is always a crowd pleaser on the southwest corner of the courthouse square during this family friendly festival and don’t miss the Lonestar Action Sports Stunt Team performances! The downtown festival begins at 10:00 Saturday morning and will also feature the Kids Zone, arts & crafts vendors, an antique car show that features over 200 cars, festival foods, and live entertainment.
Scare on the Square 2018 was wildly popular, THANK YOU to all that participated.
