Artists sought for Mountain Heritage Day

Arts and crafts vendors are being sought to participate in Mountain Heritage Day, Western Carolina University’s annual fall festival of traditional Appalachian culture.

The deadline for submitting arts and crafts applications is March 30.

This year’s Mountain Heritage Day will be held Saturday, Sept. 29, on the WCU campus in Cullowhee. The festival typically attracts more than 20,000 visitors who come to enjoy three stages of continuous music and dance, exhibitions of Cherokee stickball and shape-note singing, and more than 150 booths of food and juried arts and crafts.

Arts and crafts are judged for quality of workmanship, booth display and design. The festival gives out cash awards to artists for “best in show,” first place and second place. Applications for arts and crafts vendors are available at the festival website,
