The Shenandoah Chamber of Commerce has a big Autumnfest celebration on the 14th (in conjunction with the races) that features a Kansas City BBQ competition with 40-plus participants (yes, there is plenty of sampling), 25 craft beers, live music, a car show and more. Tickets for the Autumnftest aspect  can be purchased at but again, admission to just the races is free!
