The 21st Annual Festival will be Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th. There are an average of 25,000 visitors who are drawn to the dozens of delicate varieties of food, the stages of traditional entertainment and the rich history of the region.
The Greene County Iris Festival was created in 1994 and has since become the county’s major festival of the year. Featuring artists, craftsmen, merchants and food vendors from across the country, the festival is designed to offer entertainment and showcase local, regional and national talent. As a juried festival, participating artists and craftsmen must meet certain criteria and can only sell handmade items. With more than 140 crafters and merchants, the streets are filled with exquisite, unique items of any kind.
