Museum of Appalachia hosts 33rd Annual Fall Homecoming

Museum of Appalachia hosts it’s 33rd Annual Fall Homecoming on October 12 – 14, 2012.

The festival showcases some 400 musicians playing authentic Southern Appalachian bluegrass, Gospel, folk and old-time country music continuously on five stages. Wherever you are on the grounds, there will be music nearby. Old-time artisans entertain and offer their treasures for sale. Demonstrators show and explain how people lived and worked during pioneer times.

Each day of the event, dozens of local cooks serve country food, some of it prepared on wood-burning stoves and in iron kettles. More than 175 artisans—some whose work is rarely seen elsewhere—demonstrate old-time mountain activities including quilting, basket weaving, rail-splitting, spinning and weaving, whittling, chair-caning, lye soap making, and construction of old-time musical instruments. Thousands of handcrafted items are available for purchase during the three-day event.
