The McKinney Center Fall Market 

The McKinney Center is excited to host its Fall Market August 25 & 26!

The purpose of this show is to highlight the fine art produced in our region.  The Town of Jonesborough is dedicated to bringing the community at large closer together and show other communities the creative influence that the arts can bring to their quality of life.  It is imperative that the quality of this fine art show be maintained and offer patrons the opportunity to experience art of the highest standards.
