Kinser Fest is back, and the much-anticipated fall festival takes place Saturday, Oct. 24 and Sunday, Oct. 25 from 2 to 10 p.m. on both days.

This year’s Kinser Fest will have no shortage of food, game booths, prize giveaways and amusement rides but the main attraction is the free live entertainment. The highlight of the entertainment is the live performance of the platinum-selling and Grammy nominated singer-songwriter, Vanessa Carlton.

In addition to Carlton, the Kinser Festival’s entertainment lineup features jazz band Subfive and variety group Zyncxation on both days. On Saturday, see street performer Tamanchu and Eisa group Ninu-fa Daiko and Ti-da Daiko. R & B group New Solution and dance troupe T-DA is slated for the stage on Sunday, alongside Eisa group Chinjinsyu Waka-Tida.

Headliner Vanessa Carlton will take to the stage at 8 p.m. on Saturday. Carlton is known best for writing “A Thousand Miles,” one of the defining pop songs of the 2000s, which earned her a platinum certification and a Grammy nod.
