About the Ole Time Festival

In 1981 the Edinburg Chamber of Commerce had been thinking about ways to help to market the town, with its quaint shops and the Edinburg Mill Restaurant that had existed at that time. Edinburg Mill Restaurant owner Jim Ellis and Mariam Irvin were behind this effort. The Chamber had first considered holding an annual town-wide yard sale, but they then decided that they wanted something more. Finally, Mr. Ellis suggested they have an Ole Time Festival, complete with a March Through Town Parade. The parade would be more like an old time parade. It would not even include features of larger parades, such as marching bands. The festival would also have feature a few other events to attract visitors. Jim Ellis was the first OTF Chairman, Miriam Irvin was Co-chair.
