The 2022 Annual Harvest Festival is only a couple of days away! The Donalsonville Seminole County Chamber of Commerce is busy wrapping up loose ends and working out the last minute details.
More than sixty arts and crafts and food vendors have signed up to be a part of the Donalsonville-Seminole County Chamber of Commerce’s annual Harvest Festival on Saturday, October 15th.
This year the Festival will be held completely between Tennille Avenue and Wiley Avenue. Food vendors will be located on Woolfork Avenue, musical entertainment and children’s activities will be set up on Cherry Street, and Arts/Crafts vendors will line both sides of Second Street. The Old Iron Tractor Museum on Second Street, west of Wiley Avenue, will also be open for tours throughout the day. Chamber President Sarah Avery commented, “We are planning to have as many of everyone’s favorites as possible – a parade, arts and crafts vendors, food, music, and children’s activities which will include pony rides, face painting, a rock climbing wall, bouncy houses and a train. This year’s parade theme is Harvest, and we’re looking forward to seeing the creativity of our local residents on display.”
The day will begin with the annual running of the Rejoice Run & Mom’s Mile at 7:30 a.m., followed by the Harvest Festival parade at 10:30 a.m., and musical performances by Eli Moseley and Seminole County’s Jake Vinson, beginning after the parade.
If you are interested in participating in the parade, reserving a booth, or entering a contest, call the Chamber at 229-524-2588 or fill out the forms available on the chamber’s website at www.donalsonville-seminole.org
Country artist Eli Mosley, the festival’s headline entertainer, performs at 11:15 a.m.
After highly successful shows throughout the nation from Florida to California, Nashville recording artist Mosley brings a high energy and entertaining show to the Harvest Festival stage in Donalsonville, for all age groups.
Listen once to his music or see one of Mosley’s shows, and you’ll understand that he is a performer to watch. Ever since he saw Tracy Byrd on stage at six years old, he knew he would be a country music artist.
To prepare, he learned to play the guitar, graduated with a university degree in both music and business and spent six years in the US Marine Corps. He has released three Nashville recorded and produced albums at Ocean Way Studio, Studio West and Sound Emporium.
Radio stations are playing his music throughout the nation. He has toured extensively since 2014. He performs with four other musicians in his band (electric guitar, bass guitar, drums and acoustic guitars).
He has opened for Tracy Byrd, Tracy Lawrence, Joe Nichols, Tyler Farr, Jana Kramer, Parmalee, Jake Owen, Maren Morris and more. Eli performed for three years at the prestigious BMI Island Hopper Songwriters Festival and is beginning to turn heads with his song writing abilities as established Nashville song writers collaborate with him. His shows rock, are fun and bring something for everyone.
