The Nation's Longest Running Folk Festival
Join the celebration - a different show each night!
The 89th Annual Mountain Dance and Folk Festival showcases real mountain performers who share songs and dances that echo centuries of Scottish, English, Irish, Cherokee and African heritage. Each evening is a joyful exploration of the rich culture found in the valleys and coves between the Great Smokies and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
