43rd John C. Campbell Folk School Fall Festival

Rhonda Hood September 18, 2017

Here’s another incredible Fall Festival that our mountains is known for.  Just over the North Carolina line, in Brasstown, NC – theres an annual celebration of Appalachian culture held beneath golden fall sunlight and brightly colored leaves of the mountains. This treasured annual celebration of Appalachian culture, held on the Folk School’s Brasstown, North Carolina campus, heralds its 43rd anniversary in October.

Visit over 240 fine craft exhibitors tucked along the school’s winding wooded paths. Watch more than 40 artisans demonstrate traditional and contemporary crafts. Fill your ears with bluegrass, gospel, folk, and Celtic music on both days. Tap your toes to clogging, Morris, and Garland dance performances throughout the weekend.

Children will enjoy the pony rides, petting the alpacas, and visiting the animals at the Humane Society’s pet adoption booth. Face painting and arts and crafts activities will be offered by the Cherokee County Arts Council.

Hungry festival-goers can satisfy their appetites with a tasty lunch, dessert, or snack. Vendors’ concession proceeds benefit several non-profit and community organizations.

The Folk School’s renowned Craft Shop, containing fine crafts from over 300 juried regional artists, will draw visitors throughout the weekend and be offering a chance to win a $100 gift certificate to the Craft Shop.

IMPORTANT TIPS:
There are no ATM’s on campus: While many vendors accept credit cards, attendees are encouraged to bring cash to pay for tickets and food.
