Fall harvest festival comes to Mountain Farm Museum

Written by 

art thisguyThe annual Mountain Life Festival in Great Smoky Mountains National Park will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Mountain Farm Museum near Cherokee.

 

This event continues to preserve the legacy of Appalachian folkways and is a tribute to the many families who lived on lands that later became the national park. All activities are free and open to the public and will include demonstrations of hearth cooking, apple butter and apple cider making, blacksmithing, lye soap making, food preservation, broom making, quilting, and chair bottoming. Artifacts and historic photographs from the national park’s collection will also be on display.

The sorghum syrup-making demonstration is provided by students, staff, and volunteers from Swain County High School Future Farmers of America through a cooperative agreement with Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Great Smoky Mountains Association.

Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
