Arts and crafts vendors and demonstrators are being sought to participate in 9th annual Franklin Folk Festival, a celebration of Appalachian Heritage in historic downtown Franklin. The Franklin Folk Festival will be held Saturday, July 21, from 9 p.m. to 4 p.m. New this year, Main Street will be closed to traffic and filled with Appalachian artisans who will be selling their authentic heritage items. The cost to participate in this juried event will be $50 for a 10 x 10 space.
The Franklin Folk Festival features more than 100 living exhibits and demonstrations to allow visitors to experience what mountain life was like way back when. Things like woodcarving, moonshinin’, basket making, weaving and spinning, and all the many other things. A full schedule of mountain music is planned and plenty of “heritage” food will be available.
