A celebration of Appalachian Heritage! The festival features many living exhibits and demonstrations to allow visitors to experience what mountain life was like way back when. These folks learned at their parents’ knee woodcarving, moonshinin', basket making, weaving and spinning, and all the many other heritage skills they’ll be demonstrating. The 25th Infantry Civil War Re-enactors will be on hand to offer a wonderful opportunity to learn about how this conflict affected the lives of ancestors who lived through it. The re-enactors will setup camp and offer tours. There will also be a full schedule of old time and mountain music with plenty of good food to eat.
