Dive into folklore this Friday
Blue Ridge Parkway rangers will host a new outdoor interpretive series dubbed “Fridays at the Folk Art Center” at 7:30 p.m. every Friday this season at the Folk Art Center in Asheville.
The June 11 presentation will focus on folklore, especially tricksters. The presentation will look at Rabbit, a powerful figure from Cherokee mythology, and Jack, who is typically associated with a certain beanstalk. The session will discuss what else these characters are famous for, how they reflect their different cultures and just how tricky a trickster has to be.
The Folk Art Center is located at Milepost 382 of the Blue Ridge Parkway. The building will not be open during the programs, with no restrooms available on site. Bring a chair or blanket. 828.298.5330, ext. 302.
