Relive the History of the Smith Mountain Lake Region With Olde Salem Days

On the 2nd Saturday of September each year, Olde Salem Days is held on the streets of downtown Salem, showcasing the works of the talented regional craftsmakers and artisans, live music performances, a car show with restored historic vehicles, a Kid’s Fair area with kid-friendly inflatable bouncy houses and face painting, and fresh baked goods. In 2018, Olde Salem Days will be held on September 8th, from 9:00am to 5:00pm.

As a street fair, Olde Salem Days does not sell tickets to its festival. However, each artisan and food vendor will have handmade items to sell. In fact, making your items by hand is a requirement to be part of the festival, ensuring that any item you purchase during Olde Salem Days will be a unique treasure. Additionally, the timing of the festival is perfect for getting a jump on early holiday shopping! Proceeds from the fair go to the Rotary Club of Salem for future charitable works. Free parking and a free shuttle ride are available from the Salem Civic Center.
