38th Annual Slabtown Festival, “CommUnity” is approaching and we are all very excited.

We will kick off Friday, September 22, 2023 tailgating at Ringgold High School Complex and come show support for the Ringgold Redskin Homecoming game. After the game asking everyone to come downtown for the entertainment under the tent and some good food sold by the vendors. 

The BIG day, Saturday, September 23, 2023, when we expect to have all of Downtown Ringgold filled with many food & craft vendors, along with the big tent—-the air will be filled with great entertainment. 

Festivities start with the Big Parade at 11 AM, featuring the 2023 Grand Marshals Linda May, Frances and Clarence Mason. Don’t forget to bring some sacks as there will be lots of candy being thrown during the parade.
