About Us

Preserving Southern Appalachian culture.

We just figured there are an awful lot of old arts and crafts ways that shouldn’t be forgotten.

These folks sure can tell a tale!

Our history began and still survives through our oral traditions. It’s Mountain Internet

Goat Pageants Both Days

You’ve got to see these babies strut their stuff. They love to show off and we hope to catch them dancing.

So much good music

Bluegrass, country, mountain ballads. All during the day.
