The Mid-South is a region of the United States that’s rich with culture, and anyone living in or visiting Tennessee will have the chance to discover the area’s history at the upcoming Fall Festival and Heritage Day celebration to be held at Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park on Nov. 10.

What is Fall Festival and Heritage Day?

The Fall Festival and Heritage Day celebration is an event held in Millington, TN, to celebrate the culture and history of the Mid-South. It was created to promote heritage, culture and appreciation of the outdoors through the support of local businesses and the community.

Events taking place

Fall Festival and Heritage Day has dozens of activities to suit attendees of all ages. The major must-sees include a Civil War camp display, a frontier town complete with period dress and historical demonstrations, a vendors’ village, wildlife shows and pontoon boat tours. Attendees can even experience stone-carving, leatherworking, archery, and atlatl-throwing games.

If you’re bringing children, they won’t want to miss going on hayrides and kiddie train rides, playing on a moon bounce, getting their faces painted or playing knocker balls.
