15th Annual Franklin Area Folk Festival

Saturday, August 17, 2019    “A Celebration of Appalachian Heritage” in Franklin, NC.

Our mission is to preserve and educate about the rich heritage of Franklin, NC and Macon County.

Co-sponsored by the Folk Heritage Association of Macon County and the Cowee School Arts & Heritage Center.

The Franklin Area Folk Festival features living exhibits and demonstrations to allow visitors to experience what mountain life was like way back when. These folks learned at their parents’ knee woodcarving, moonshinin’, basket making, weaving and spinning, and all the many other heritage skills they’ll be demonstrating. There will also be a full schedule of old time and mountain music with plenty of good food to eat.

 If you’re interested in being considered as one of our 2019 Heritage Demonstrators or for more information, click this link:  Franklinfolkfestival
