Spring Planting and Music Festival

Sat., April 28, 9:00 am-4:00 pm

| Free

The festival will feature crafters’ demonstrations of forgotten arts such as blacksmithing, basket-making, hand-spinning, weaving, woodcarving, chair-caning, soap-making, garden herb lore and use and paling fence-making.

In addition, there will be children’s activities, interpretative talks, fun runs, bird-watching and wildflower guided walks, vendors demonstrating and selling their wares and food sales.

There are displays of women’s life, antique farm tools, farm animals and old-time toys, which will delight young and old alike.

Toe-tapping tunes of mountain music are performed throughout the area by various groups such as the Knoxville Area Dulcimer Club.

Of special interest is the plowing and planting with mules and horses that takes place at the Lora Blevins field. Other demonstrations will take place at the Oscar Blevins Farm Site as well.
