Folks in Mercer County can head on over to Lake Latonka this weekend to enjoy some artisans, vendors and of course some great food at the 44th Annual Lake Latonka Fall Festival.

The festival will be held Saturday, September 9 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. and will feature over 120 artisans, businesses and organizations in two locations at the lake just one mile apart. According to the festival's website, a free shuttle service is available to transport guests between the two locations.

Guests can also get a beautiful view of the lake via a "Water Taxi" courtesy of Nye's Marina, which acts as another method of transportation between the two locations.

There will also be plenty great homemade food including the smash hit handmade vegetable soup, which sells out each year according to a press release. There will also be a bake sale, a Chinese auction and so much more.

Vendors will range from crafters, jewelry makers, non-profits and other businesses. A complete list of vendors, along with where to find them at the festival is pictured below.




There will also be an all-day raffle with prizes given every 30 minutes. Last year attendees won over $1,000 in gift certificates, merchandise and cash.

The festival is located just off I-79 outside Mercer at 420, Latonka Drive. Parking is absolutely free. Pets and animals are not permitted at the festival with the exception of service animals.
