MaupinFest — Thomas Maupin Festival
Sat., August 24, 10:00 am-10:00 pm| $5 – $10
Join the Tennessee Old-Time Music and Dance Association in a beautiful rustic setting as we honor Thomas Maupin and his life’s work in preserving old time buck dancing. Thomas, a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts National Heritage Fellow award, will be conducting a dance workshop and performing on stage.
There will be contests for old time fiddle, banjo, band, and buck/flatfoot dance. The highlight will be awarding the National Old Time Buck Dancing Championship on behalf of the Uncle Dave Macon Days Board of Directors. Morning and evening stage shows will be performed by the Glade City Rounders, Daniel Rothwell and Overall Creek, and Uncle Shuffelo and His Haint Hollow Hootenanny. The evening will end with a square dance. There is plenty of room for jamming, and food trucks and vendors will be present. Mark your calendars now and invite your friends!
