The Order of the Arrow, Wiechcheu Chapter Dancers perform during the 2011 Multicultural Fall Festival in downtown Jefferson City. This year’s festival will be Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Festive colors, ethnic foods and unique sounds will fill downtown Jefferson City 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday as the Multicultural Forum hosts its 11th annual Fall Festival.

A block north on Madison Street, the Governor’s Mansion will host its HarvestFest. And around the corner at Capitol Avenue and Jefferson Street, the Special Olympics’ fundraiser Over The Edge will send volunteers repelling down the Jefferson State Office Building.

About 7,000 visitors are expected to be downtown this weekend. Since moving downtown from Memorial Park at the invitation of the Downtown Jefferson City Association three years ago, the event has seen substantial growth, Vogt said.
