The ASF coincides with the inaugural Rogersville Vintage Fair, which will be held throughout the day Saturday on Main Street in downtown Rogersville.

All day the Saturday downtown Main Street will be closed to traffic as the Main street Association hosts its first annual "Vintage Fair."

Dozens of vendors will be set up on the streets selling "vintage items", and there will also be live entertainment, arts and crafts and food.
