Come and usher in the fall season as we celebrate the mountain heritage of east Tennessee and southwest Virginia! Revisit the old days and enjoy local traditions on Broad Street in Historic downtown Kingsport.
Arts and Crafts booths will be set up by local artisans, crafters and churches. All day long, good "vittles" will be on hand. Vendors will be selling home-cooked food including pinto beans, cornbread, corn on the cob, and fried apple pies.
Entertainment for all ages will be going on all day as well. Live bluegrass and folk music will be performed by local musicians on our Broad Street stage.
Take a break from the heat and enjoy creative arts performances inside LampLight Theatre by Pocket Full of Seeds throughout the day.
For animal lovers, there will be a "Mountain Critters" petting zoo and Pony Rides.
A special area for children, "Kids Explosion" will be set up with Inflatables, a Kids Activity tent, face painting, puppets and games.
Adults may try their hand at Cornhole and Horseshoes.
