CLINTON, Tenn. – The Anderson County Chamber of Commerce hosts the 17th annual Clinch River Fall Antiques Festival Oct. 13-14 in historic downtown Clinton.
Live entertainment on the Hoskins/Lane Park Stage kicks off Oct. 13 festivities including the “Cruze In” for muscle cars, shops open late for perusing and buying, food vendors and more.
The rain or shine event on Oct. 14 features more than 90 antique dealers, two food courts, four bands in Hoskins Park, more antique cars, a children’s area with a bounce house, free shuttles and the annual reenactment.
History will come to life through the annual re-enactment of the 1804 pistol duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Burr, first term Vice President of the United States under Thomas Jefferson, shot Hamilton, Secretary of the Treasury, in a duel fueled by years of animosity and personal tensions between the two political rivals. Learn what the significance of this duel between national leaders had on Clinton’s history and why a town once named Burrville changed its name to Clinton. The re-enactors from the Anderson County Sons of the Revolution will also have a booth set up on Main Street to display their re-enactment items.
The event is sponsored by SunTrust, Tennova, Methodist Medical Center, Fox Toyota and the City of Clinton.
