Blue Ridge Farm Museum Hosts Folklife Festival

The Blue Ridge Farm Museum will host the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival on October 22, 2011.

For 38 years the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival has brought together musicians and moonshiners, craftspeople and cooks, hot rodders and horse handlers, and much more in a celebration of the Blue Ridge lifestyle on the campus of Ferrum College. Our festival participants are the real thing, sharing folk traditions that are a part of their everyday lifestyle. In short, the Blue Ridge Folklife Festival is a full day of entertainment like none other.

(The festival takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine. Admission in 2010 was $10 for adults and $5 for children and senior citizens. Parking is free.)

For over 30 years Ferrum College’s Blue Ridge Institute & Museum has documented the folkways of the people living in and around the Blue Ridge Mountains.
