Each day, all day, musicians perform on rustic outdoor stages; filling the air with the sounds of traditional mountain, folk, Bluegrass, Gospel, old-time and AmericanaStage 1 Crowd music throughout the grounds. The weekend includes demonstrations of pioneer skills, a large craft fair with authentic Appalachian artisans, and traditional Southern foods.
