May 18, 2019 Old Time Jubilee
10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M.

Every year the town of Allensworth had a big bash. This is the time of year when the carnival came to town. The Friends of Allensworth provide a great family festival atmosphere with entertainment featuring...gospel, jazz and drama. There are activities strictly for the young and even the toddlers. In addition to the free self paced tours of the historic buildings, you can talk to some of the original pioneers and their heirs. This is the best family bargain in the state, because there is more. You can even shop at the open air arts and craft market. When you get hungry, you can eat a variety of some of the best ethnic food for miles around.
