Uncle Billy's Day Festival - Postponed until 2024

Altavista's Annual Uncle Billy's Day Festival to resume June 2024.

The Uncle Billy’s Day Reunion event scheduled for June 2-3, 2023, has been cancelled.
Discussions began last fall about bringing this festival back to the community,
but due to circumstances beyond its control, the committee has decided to focus its efforts
on planning for the return of Uncle Billy’s Day in June 2024.

The Uncle Billy’s Day Reunion Committee includes:
 - Town of Altavista Staff,
 - Altavista Area Chamber of Commerce Staff
                      and Chamber Board of Directors,
 - Avoca Museum Staff
                and Board of Directors,
 - Community Members involved in previous Uncle Billy’s Day festival planning.

The UBD Committee understands the desire of the community to see Uncle Billy’s Day return and is looking forward to a successful event in 2024. 

In preparing for next year’s event, the Altavista Area Chamber of Commerce will develop an event committee to execute the planning and logistics of Uncle Billy’s Day. An event of this magnitude requires a large amount of volunteer support.
If you are interested in helping with the festival as an individual volunteer and/or a group of volunteers through civic organizations,
Please contact the UBD Committee at unclebillysday@gmail.com or (434) 272-8762.

While the larger 2023 Uncle Billy’s Day Festival has been postponed,
an Uncle Billy’s Day inspired celebration will occur on Sunday, June 4, 2023, from 2-5 p.m. at the Avoca Museum.
This celebration will include a Gospel Music Festival, Old Time Cake Walk, food vendors, and more.
"This event will be free to attend"
