Bicentennial Activities during and after the Festival
This year the Fayette Festival of the Arts was part of Fayette's Bicentennial Celebration. During the festival a resolution from the state legislature recognizing Fayette's 200th year waswill be presented. FAHA had a display and picture presentation about Fayette's history at the Fayette Area Heritage Association (FAHA) tent on the Courthouse and articles from the Time Capsule buried during the town's sesquicentennial in 1973 were distributed.
However, the Bicentennial activities are not limited to the weekend of the Festival. The Urial Wright Building, FAHA headquarters located at 120 N. Church St., will also be open to offer envelopes for placement in the 2073 time capsule and to give information on the community and the Bicentennial every Saturday morning in August. Bicentennial T-shirts and other items will also be available for purchase.
Winners of the Fayette Bicentennial Poster Contest were announced during the Festival. The posters are on display in the front window of a building on the south side of the square across from the courthouse. Prizes may be picked up at the Wright Building on Saturday mornings from 9 am to noon.
