Come spend the day enjoying authentic crafts, lots of food, music and fun. In celebration of our 20th anniversary of the Mountain Heritage Festival, this year, more bands will grace the stage. Four local bands and the Junior Appalachian Musicians will take the stage on September 20 beginning at 10am. Loose Strings, an all-female group, from Galax, VA is known for their tight vocal harmonies and sweet rhythms. Sparta’s own group 5Play, providing a mix of country and southern rock, will also take the stage, along with Hard Cider, a Grayson County, VA acoustic band, and The Rise and Shine Band, one of the areas premier bluegrass bands and the house band at the Alleghany Jubilee, is a regular on the Mountain Heritage Stage. Dancers will be kicking up their heels and don’t forget the Possom Queen contest and Crowning.
