The 13th Annual St. Albans Founders Day was held on Main Street, Saturday, May 12, 2018, from 10 - 4 pm. The 1st Annual Founders Day Weekend began in October, 2006 by the St. Albans Rennaisance Group and the St. Albans Historical Society. Now sponsored solely by the St. Albans Founder's Day Committee and the St. Albans Historical Society, this event brings people to Main Street for food, arts & crafts and plenty of entertainment and helps to celebrate the history of St. Albans and also promotes the businesses downtown. There were over 50 vendors and food booths this year as well as singers and entertainers. This evert lasted this year (new) until 8 pm with several fine singing groups.
This year the old Herbert’s Music Company, owned by Frank McCormick, was used for art displays throughout the day and also the showing of vintage St. Albans videos inside. The newly refurbished City Restrooms were also opened that day....located to the rear of the Old City Hall.
New this year, from 4:00 - 8:00 pm, there was more music on Main St. and door prizes, along with Mountain Que BBQ.
