Old Worthington Market Day

Saturday, October 2, 2021

The popular Old Worthington Market Day Festival is making a return to historic downtown Worthington on Saturday, October 2, 2021. On Market Day, Worthington's largest one-day festival, artisans gather on the streets of downtown Worthington to present a colorful and varied display of quality hand-crafted goods from jewelry, pottery and ceramics to beautiful paintings, decorative clothing and unique wood products. Community and local charitable groups also have fundraising and informational booths on display, and a host of food vendors provide meals, snacks and concessions ranging from signature local restaurant dishes to carnival-atmosphere snacks.

The Worthington Market Day Festival is making a return to historic downtown Worthington on Saturday, October 2, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The popular festival was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID-19 conditions.
