Labor Day signals the end of summer, which ushers in the season of football, colorful foliage - and fall festivals.

The Times Free Press presents its annual fall fairs and festivals guide today with 108 craft shows, fine art shows, county and state fairs, heritage festivals and harvest festivals. The list does not include music festivals nor athletic events such as River Rocks.

All events are day trips within a two-hour drive (one way) of Chattanooga. Keep this guide handy for when you're looking for weekend fun in coming months. The guide is also in September's issue of Chatter magazine.
