There’s a new collaborative event coming to downtown Mansfield this fall, the Fab Four & More Fest!
This day long downtown event will feature four of downtown’s most popular experiences all held on the same day with much more. The Fab Four & More Fest will feature the Mansfield Arts & Cultural Festival in Central Park, Touch a Truck in the Carrousel District, Oktoberfest in the Brickyard, and the fall Secret City Tour all over downtown!
The Mansfield Arts Festival is an annual celebration of the arts in Richland County and showcases local artists and their wonderful talent. The event will run from 11am-6pm this year and will be held in Central Park. Activities will include art displays, live art, food trucks, music and a kid’s zone. Monetary prizes will also be awarded to participating artists.
Touch a Truck is the Richland Carrousel Park’s annual event where kids get a chance to interact with some of the coolest transportation vehicles around! The event is free for young and old, have fun sitting in the driver’s seat, honk the horns, and blow the sirens. Carrousel rides are free all day long thanks to First Energy!
Phoenix Brewing Company’s Oktoberfest is a celebration of the harvest season. Enjoy German and Irish foods live music, and of course, craft beer! Wear your favorite Oktoberfest or Irish gear. Kilts and Lederhosen not required but appreciated. Event runs 12pm – 10pm at the Phoenix.
The fall Secret City Tour is the second and final tour of the year for this DMI signature self-guided tour. Explore historic downtown buildings and architectural gems. Photography welcome!
