Next month is the 22nd Annual Townsend Fall Heritage Festival and Old Timers Day event.
Highlights for this year's festival include bluegrass music, mountain music jam sessions, storytelling, family activities, crafts by local artisans, great food, and demonstrations of a variety of traditional skills such as basketry, quilting, weaving, sorghum molasses, apple butter making, apple cider, beekeeping, and blacksmithing.
The event will take place on Friday, September 26th and Saturday, September 27th at the Townsend Visitors Center. For more information, please click here.
If planning to attend the event, be sure to make plans to stay in Townsend. If you've never had the pleasure of staying in the Townsend area, also known as the “Quiet Side of the Smokies”, you may want to note that it's much easier getting in and out of the park, and is fairly close to Cades Cove. If you need a rental cabin during your visit, be sure to visit our Townsend Accommodations page.
