The 8th Annual Mt. Vernon Fall Fest will be held September 27-29. This year’s theme, “Growth. Progress. Pride.”, will focus on Mt. Vernon and Jefferson County’s bicentennial. 2019 is both the city and county’s 200th birthday. Our bicentennial is a great opportunity to focus on the past, present, and future of our region. The community and visitors are invited to celebrate the history and growth of our city and county.
