Many of the streets in uptown Martinsville will be closed to traffic and filled with vendors Saturday during the 34th annual Oktoberfest.
Admission is free to the festival, which will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. along Church, Main, Bridge and Lester streets.
Vendor spaces were filled as of Thursday for the event.
The 2013 fest will feature more than 230 vendors from five states selling arts and crafts, jewelry, holiday items and home accessories, as well as American, German, Turkish and Mexican food and carnival-style treats such as cotton candy, funnel cakes and snow cones.
The event also will include a variety of entertainment, such as the Boys and Girls Club Steel Drum Band; Strong Hold; the Martinsville High School Jazz Band; and the Triad Highlanders.
The entertainment will culminate with a talent show at 4 p.m. sponsored by Mtn Jax Pub & Restaurant.
Many uptown merchants will display merchandise along the streets, and Samuel Adams and Lawrence Distributing will sponsor a craft beer garden in the Bridge Street parking lot.
