This week, the population of Maynard increases exponentially. The small town in Randolph County has a population of less than 400, but this week that number will, most likely, at least triple.

The 30th annual Maynard Pioneer Days is slated for Sept. 15-18. Held at the Maynard Pioneer Park, the event features entertainment, live music, great food, a craft fair and a pioneer dress contest. Make sure and stop by the Pioneer Museum for a glimpse of life during the late 1800s.

On Sunday, Sept. 19, the 87th annual Old Folks Singing, featuring live gospel music, takes place at the Maynard Methodist Church. The event kicks off at 11 a.m. and also features a potluck luncheon. After lunch, the music begins again and lasts throughout the afternoon. It’s a wonderful chance to experience true gospel music at it’s best!
