Each year, Southern Appalachian culture is celebrated during the Mountain Heritage Day festival held at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, which is only a half-hour drive from your Bryson City or Cherokee vacation cabin rental.
The festival will feature a variety of regional arts and crafts, music, folk arts, clogging, storytelling as well as many interesting demonstrations. Vendors will be on site selling glasswork, basketry, paintings, pottery, woodwork and ceramics. You can even try some real southern fare!
The festival will be held at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center from 10a.m. to 5p.m. on Saturday, September 24th. Admission and parking are free. For more information, click here.
