Experience a revamped festival celebrating Southwest Virginia's unique heritage. Emphasis has been placed on making the festival even more enjoyable for visitors featuring handmade Appalachian crafts, live music, demonstrations and more. This year's music lineup is headlined by country music artist Jimmy Rose, who grabbed the spotlight of Season 8 of America's Got Talent where he finished third and Denise Lawson Glass, who will perform her very popular Patsy Cline tribute. Storytellers and woodcarvers will also take the stage during the event which also includes Appalachian crafts for sale, demonstrators showcasing their time-honored skills and a children's festival where the young ones enjoy fun and educational activities all with an Appalachian theme. Enjoy an old fashioned apple butter stir, watch the hands of a basket weaver and take a stroll inside the Karlan Mansion to see quilting demonstrations. Admission is now just $5 per vehicle. Begins at 10 a.m.
