20 Fun Fall Ideas in the North Georgia Mountains – #7

The Mountain Life Team Blogger August 30, 2013

PrintGotta love all the mountain fall festivals coming up!  Everyone always asks me about them so that is one reason I am covering so many upcoming ones for fall in the North Georgia Mountains.  Mark your calendars for October 5th and 6th for my #7 suggestion of fall fun!  The John C Campbell Folk School is celebrating it’s 40th annual folk school festival!

One of the largest and most popular events of its type in the region, this Fall Festival is a celebration of the rich Appalachian heritage. Fine crafts from over 200 vendors, craft-making demonstrations, music and dance performances, kids’ activities, tasty food, and a visit to the school’s Craft Shop and History Center make the Fall Festival a great way to begin the autumn season.

While you are enjoying your time at the festival, check out this great school and all they have to offer.  If you have always wanted to learn a certain craft or skill, they have so much available here.  We went to this festival last year and it was a great time!!!  If you missed my past suggestion for fall fun, check it out here.  With all these great festivals going on, maybe you should just rent a cabin for the whole month of October?  Better yet, call one of our amazing Mountain Life Team agents to show you beautiful cabins that could be your very own in one these awesome mountain towns!
