Mountaineer Folk Festival is this weekend

The passing of Labor Day means it is time for the 41st annual Mountaineer Folk Festival at Fall Creek Falls State Park.

The event is Friday, September 6 through Sunday, September 8, and offers a weekend of traditional bluegrass music, country cooking, pioneer skill demonstrations, and roughly 100 craft booths featuring a varied array of handicrafts, baked goods, and original homemade designs.

“This festival offers an outstanding opportunity for people to come together and celebrate the heritage, history, and natural beauty of the Cumberland Plateau,” said festival coordinators. “Whether it’s listening to a great musical performance, tasting delicious food, or enjoying special events and demonstrations scheduled throughout the weekend, the Mountaineer Folk Festival offers a wide range of cultural and educational opportunities, not to mention a weekend full of family-friendly fun, with a little something to interest everyone.”

The Friday kick-off features Appalachian-style music beginning at 7:00 p.m.
