The Town of Olar will celebrate the Seventh Annual Model T’s to Olar Festival on October 16 and 17. Olar has a special connection with Ford Motor Company because of a relationship Henry Ford had with C. F. Rizer.

Chairwoman, Brenna Hancock, Hancock, “Our festival has something everyone can enjoy. This is our seventh festival and we will never promote alcohol use and it will never be allowed to be sold by vendors during our event. This has proven to be successful in previous years as all ages can enjoy our fun-filled event safely.”

“The size of the festival has grown steadily since about 1,000 people attended the first festival. Last year almost 3,000 people came to Olar to see Model T’s and enjoy the small-town atmosphere. With Gold City joining us this year, we anticipate this year’s crowd to double,” she said.
