Fall Creek Falls - 30th Mountaineer Folk Festival.
This is a must see event for all ages!
The best country, folk, bluegrass, and old time musicians are booked in addition a wide variety of traditional folk crafts are not only shown and available for sale, but demonstrated there at the festival. Including- sheep herding, shearing, spinning and carding, dying, and knitting and weaving of homespun woolen yarns. Soap making, natural dyes, paper making, doll making, wheatstraw work, silhouette work, pottery, basketmaking, ironwork & many other traditional crafts available for sale. Suitable for large groups. Bus parking available.
The large festival grounds at Fall Creek Falls State Park is a wonderful place for the event. Loud booms of Civil War cannons crash in the background-- re-enactors demonstrating the technologies and costumes of that era-- while wrought iron workers demonstrate their craft and take orders for commissioned works. Stained glass artisans work on projects in between questions from curious visitors.
Mountain dance is also featured at the festival, with demonstrators of buck dancing, square and circle dancing, clogging and 'called' country dancing.
There are more craters and vendors this year than in years past - so this should be an extremely fun filled weekend.
Come to Fall Creek Falls State Park & experience fun in the mountains!
