FLOYD — After a 2-year COVID hiatus, the Floyd County Arts & Crafts Festival is back for 2022.

The festival will be held on Oct. 1-2 at Floyd County High School, Saturday from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Festivalgoers will see a number of changes to the venue this year due to a new building and construction at the high school. Parking is limited at the high school and adjacent elementary school and festivalgoers are encouraged to use the satellite parking/shuttle stop areas in town at the Floyd County Courthouse and Citizens Telephone. Shuttle buses will be running to these two parking areas throughout the festival. Some handicapped parking will be available at the high school.

Shuttle bus drop-off and pick-up at the high school will also be different. Instead of drop-off/pick-up at the main doors of the school, it will be at the back doors of the school near the cafeteria and just down the hall from the old gym vendor area. Hostesses will be available at the back doors to direct festivalgoers to the vendor areas.

Vendor spaces and areas have changed, so be sure to check at the main lobby information desk to find all the locations. If you have any questions at the festival, hostesses will be available to answer them. Hostesses can be identified by sunflower corsages and blue aprons.

There is no smoking on the school grounds. Pets are not allowed on the grounds or at the festival; service animals are welcome.

The festival is sponsored by the GFWC Floyd County Woman’s Club, which has been putting on this festival for over 50 years. Proceeds from the festival are used to support charity and service organizations in Floyd County and local areas.
