Bigfoot Festival Still On for September in Marion

(FESTIVAL CANCELLED) Bigfoot so far has not fallen victim to the coronavirus. Plans for the September 18th and 19th Bigfoot Festival in Marion are continuing. Friday, September 18th will include a massive Bigfoot Expo inside the Marion Community Building with researchers presenting and displaying a wide range of evidence. The expo costs $5 per person. Saturday, September 19th will feature an expanded street festival that will last from 10 AM-6 PM with vendors, speakers, Sasquatch-themed food, and even a kids zone. Organizers are planning on having a wide variety of craft and food vendors, along with book signings, lectures, and live demonstrations about how to hunt for the mysterious creature. Several booths will be set up for Bigfoot hunters to present their photographs and plaster casts from expeditions into the woods.

This is the third year of the event and is the only one of its kind on the east coast. The event will be sponsored by the Marion Downtown Business Association, the McDowell Chamber of Commerce, and the Facebook group ‘Bigfoot 911’.
