Junkstock Fall Festival at Sycamore Farms has wrapped up for the season with great reviews from those who had attended.
Between the vendors and live music, Junkstock 2020 left the crowd buzzing with high hopes for next year. The products and food came from numerous states, creating appreciation for both local and regional creators.
The website for Junkstock explains the festival as “a locally owned small business, but now features over 200 vintage, antique and junk vendors that are joined by makers for the magical festival three times a year.”
One thing I found really interesting about Junkstock was the funky and hipster atmosphere. The logo for the festival is the peace sign and it followed that branding all throughout with fall festival displays and vendor choices. The vendors had a variety of food and art, labelled as “junk” by the festival’s founder, Sara Alexander.
Ella Bennett, a sophomore in the College of Arts and Sciences, agreed. “I enjoyed all the shops and overall atmosphere, and the store owners’ creativity and enthusiasm made it special,” she said.
Junkstock was also one of the most creative ways to support small, local businesses. There was everything from vintage shops to photographers at Junkstock. If you like supporting sustainable fashion and locally owned businesses, fall festivals like Junkstock are for you.
If you’re feeling down about missing this fall’s event, make sure to keep an eye out for the spring event coming in 2021.
