Connecting students, Fairmont State University alumni and the community, SeptemberFest will offer vendors, music, family activities, a high-end fashion runway show and more in downtown Fairmont on Saturday, Sept. 20. SeptemberFest is part of Family Weekend, planned for Friday through Sunday, Sept. 19 to 21.

This year’s street festival will feature a special collaboration with FSU alumna and up and coming designer Beth Keener, who has crossed art and fashion to create her own style of truly wearable art. Keener has put together an art exhibit and fashion runway event at The Gatherings, 216 Monroe St., from 5 to 8 p.m. The fashion runway show begins at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the exhibit/fashion show are available for purchase for $7.50 at www.beth.keener.com and will be sold at the door at the event.
Family friendly activities are planned for day-time activities for Septemberfest. A Family Fun Zone will include music and a hay maze in the green space on Adams Street. From 3 to 3:30 p.m. there will be a Mr. Twist Magic Show. Phil Wiseman will DJ from 4 to 4:45 p.m. and play live music from 5 to 5:45 p.m.
