September 9 and 10, 2017
French Creek District, Avon, Ohio
Fall Into Avon is Saturday September 9th and Sunday September 10th in the historic French Creek District in Avon, Ohio.  We encourage everyone to come out and support Avon's merchants!  Please contact a merchant directly for their independent hours of operation.

Unfortunately, the Festival events French Creek Foundation has coordinated in the past (the Kids Pavilion, Pet Pavilion, and Classic Car Show) will not be part of the 2017 Fall Into Avon Festival.  Over the next year, French Creek Foundation will seek to partner with new organizations to revamp and revitalize the Festival with new family-friendly events.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2018 Fall Into Avon Festival.
A Message from French Creek Foundation
 
We were very disappointed by the author's negative tone in the September 3, 2017, article "Fall Into Avon cancelled but merchant's association holding their own celebration with sales and specials" written by Linda Gandee/special to cleveland.com, following the cancellation of the festival portion of Fall Into Avon 2017.
 
For the last 24 years, French Creek Foundation has succeeded in organizing and implementing numerous community projects, annual events, and fundraisers.  And while locating volunteers is an ongoing challenge for all non-profits, that was not the reason (as has been speculated online) the festival portion of this year's Fall Into Avon weekend did not go forward -- our first cancellation.
 
We welcome new members, project partners, and volunteers, and truly appreciate the support and assistance they provide.  We reach out to other organizations to partner with us and each month invite members, non-members, and merchants to attend our meetings.
 
Our officers and volunteers are not compensated for their time and the businesses they represent do not benefit directly from French Creek Foundation's projects and events.  Instead, our community involvement benefits the City of Avon, its residents, and businesses.
 
We have begun planning for Fall Into Avon 2018 and welcome any and all ideas and assistance offered for all of our projects, events, and fundraisers.
 
We encourage anyone who wishes to give back to the community to join French Creek Foundation and actively participate.  We meet the first Tuesday of each month at 9:30 AM at St. Mary of the Woods on Detroit Road.  Should anyone have any questions or need additional information regarding our meetings, please feel free to contact us at frenchcreekfoundation@gmail.com.
