Xenia Rail And Arts Festival

Art and heritage will once again steam onto Xenia’s east Main Street during the sixth annual Rail and Arts Festival on Saturday, Aug. 28. Created to preserve Xenia’s railroad heritage it also highlights Greene County’s many artists. Trains and layouts from N-gauge to Live Steam models will be on display with additional exhibits in merchant windows. Concurrently, the Greene County Historical Society, 74 W Church St., will host an open display of its HO-scale model of Xenia and its railroad system from 1920 to 1950. Food and fun at the festival will include the Kiwanis’ Barbequed Rib Cook-off, model train rides like the Carillon Park Rail & Steam, and music starting at noon with WBZI’s Joe Mullins and the Radio Ramblers and other groups.  Visitors will find a variety of items for sale like railroading and model stock, and art such as glass, pottery, pictures and more. There will also be awards for railroading, the arts, and the best ribs. The Xenia Rail and Arts Festival will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free. (Photo by Dick Strous)
