Always the 2nd Saturday in October
Fall in Mount Vernon, TX means two things: football and CountryFest! Each year on the 2nd Saturday in October thousands of folks travel from all over to gather at the city square in Mount Vernon and enjoy the largest annual city-wide event. CountryFest began in 1974 and this year will mark the 48th annual CountryFest!
Come early to enjoy a pancake breakfast near Tom Ramsay Real-Estate hosted by the Rotary Club. Stay for a while and enjoy live entertainment by local musicians while you stroll through the myriad of vendor booths offering local, artisan, hand-crafted goods. This is a family affair so bring everyone and enjoy our Kids’s Game Area with a rock climbing wall, inflatables, gaming trailer and more! Or check out the 42 tournament sponsored be The American Legion. Bring a healthy appetite to sample the best homemade stews at the Chamber of Commerce Stew Cook Off, locally-made tamales, fresh-smoked barbecue, homemade root beer by the Boy Scouts, and of course funnel cake, snow cones or cotton candy to top it all off!
