During the event, there will be local authors, demonstrations and crafter booths including basket making, blacksmithing, quilting, weaving, wood working, wood carving, pottery, painting and soap making.

Live music will be offered on both ends of downtown. Music groups include The Darren Nicholson Band, E.T.S.U. DIRT Band, The Ross Brothers, Michael Pilgrim, Anne and Rob Lough, Productive Paranoia, Radio Hill Jam and Michael Reno Harrell. The J Creek Cloggers and Fines Creek Flatfooters will also kick up their heels for crowd excitement. 

If a square dance is your thing, join Joe Sam Queen as he gives a special demonstration and invites crowd participation. Bob Plott, with a Plott Hound, will speak of frontier hunters. Food vendors will feature barbecue, smoked sausage, homemade ice cream, fried apple pies, kettle corn and more.

Volunteers are currently needed for setup and take-down. The event is sponsored by The Downtown Waynesville Association.
