The festival planning committee is continuing to accept applications for vendors, demonstrators, crafters, and environmental groups.

Daylong events will be held on Main Street and in the Bridge Park, beginning with a 5K race sponsored by the Jackson County Recreation/Parks Department. Children’s activities, demonstrations, a youth talent contest and live performances by a wide variety of Jackson County musicians will be featured throughout the day.

The event centers on the theme of supporting local businesses, providers and residents as the best way to create a sustainable economy, and invites demonstrations, booths and educational displays from environmental groups, green initiatives and those focused on learning and sustaining traditional mountain crafts and arts.

Applications will be accepted through April 15.
