Jerseyville Festival

As the leaves turn to orange, yellow and red, and the air becomes crisp and clear, we know that it is time for the Jerseyville Festival.  Established in remembrance of days gone by, Shade will be transformed back into Jerseyville, on the second Saturday in October.  Festivities will begin at 10 am.  We hope you can join us for a day of remembering.
