Attractions at Centerfest include over a hundred vendors and organizations providing various crafts, art, and information. Local merchants have sidewalk sales to attract customers and for the last few years the Bedford Police Department has been holding a “Safety Day” at the festival. Part of this exhibit includes police vehicles and fire and rescue trucks along with safety displays and car-seat safety checks. Over twenty vehicles were on display last year!

Centerfest is one of the largest community festivals in the Mid-Atlantic featuring handmade items from across the country, live music, churches, charities, political organizations and tons of great food. Past festivals have included Polish and Italian sausage, blooming onions, turkey legs, and of course funnel cakes provided by family owned businesses and restaurants such as the Texas Tavern and Fat Daddy’s BBQ.

What family festival would be complete without fun for the kids? Activities include pony rides, face painting, a a variety of rides and games!
