Over 300 local artisans, farmers, antique dealers and food trucks will gather on 60 acres for the annual Purple Painted Lady Festival from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 22 and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 23 at 845 Yellow Mills Road, Palmyra.
Admission is $5, or free for ages 13 and younger. Over 300 items will be raffled off to benefit Boy Scout Venture Crew 313.
The Purple Painted Lady annually partners with local organizations to pay it forward. Last year’s event raised over $27,000.
This year’s festival will benefit The Green Angels, Laurel House, Palmyra-Macedon Rotary Club, South Macedon Volunteer Fire Department, Palmyra-Macedon High School’s robotics team and Boy Scout Venture Crew 313.
Me & The Boyz and The Dean’s List will perform on the front porch. The Purple Painted Lady will provide chalk paint demonstrations throughout the day. Local resident Baylee Morrison will sing the national anthem at noon. Pete Campbell, of Palmyra, will perform on the bagpipe.
Handicapped parking is accessible from state Route 31 to the Yellow Mills entrance. There are port-a-potties and off-street parking at the event. Two entrances for parking are open: state Route 31 and state Route 21.
The Venture Crew will watch over purchases so shoppers don’t have to carry them around. Volunteers can help carry heavy items to cars for a small fee.
Pets and smoking are not allowed. Visit thepurplepaintedlady.com for information.
