Mountain heritage at harvest festival

Written by 

A harvest festival will take place Oct.19-21 at the Stecoah Valley Cultural Arts Center on the grounds of the Stecoah School.

Friday evening begins with a campfire and storytelling with Civil War-era soldiers on patrol.

Saturday starts at 8 a.m. with a 5K race and a “One Mile Fun Run.” From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. the grounds will be filled with the sounds of mountain music and dancing feet. Music acts include the Stecoah JAM Kids, Britthaven Band, Valley River Gospel Trio, Vance Trull & Friends, The Dixie Darlin’s Cloggers, The Oktoberfest Square Dancers, The Leftovers Band and The Welch Family. At 7:30 p.m. The Dismembered Tennesseans will perform on the grand old stage, with adult tickets being $15 and students (K-12th grade) are $5 for that performance.

On Sunday, there will be free gospel singing in the auditorium from 2:30-5 p.m. featuring The Wilson Family, Shining Pathway, Valleytown Trio and Marble Springs Singing Men. Saturday festival admission is just $3 per adult and free for K-12th grade and younger. Parking is free.

Tickets may be purchased by calling 828.479.3364, at the Stecoah Gallery or online at www.stecoahvalleycenter.com.
