Originally entitled Old Fashioned Days, this celebration celebrated its 20th anniversary as the Baby Food Festival on July 21, 2010. More than 100,000 people will come to Fremont, a town of about 4,200, to celebrate the festival, which takes up a section of Main Street downtown. The three-day event includes live music performances, carnival rides, children's events, games, entertainment, markets and exhibitions. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are sold at various locations. The parade including custom vehicles and antique cars is often included.
Part of the celebration includes the selection of a Festival Queen from the local area. Pageant winners receive scholarships and prizes, and are asked to represent the festival and locale at noteworthy events.
