2022 Mule Camp Market
October 7 - October 9
Mule Camp Market began many years ago as a farmer’s curb market near the downtown square. This market evolved into the Corn Tassel Festival, which focused on local craft exhibitors. In 1993, the Gainesville Jaycees revamped the event & renamed it “Mule Camp” to honor the city’s origins. In the years since Mule Camp has grown into a regional fall festival with crowds in excess of 75,000 for the annual 3-day event. We will have a new layout for 2022 as we adapt to many developing spaces in Downtown Gainesville, and the heart of the festival will be centered on the Midland Greenway. The music continues on Saturday, Oct. 9. Local musicians, dance, various creative performances and even eating competitions will be happening at the Bicentennial Community Stage from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
